    FSB Issues Thematic Peer Review on Bank Resolution Planning

    June 04, 2018

    FSB launched the third thematic peer review on resolution regimes for banks. The review aims to evaluate implementation, by FSB jurisdictions, of the resolution planning standard set out in the FSB Key Attributes of Effective Resolution Regimes for Financial Institutions and in associated guidance in relation to banks. The Key Attributes are the international standard on resolution regimes and form a key component of the FSB policy framework to address the risks associated with institutions that are too-big-to-fail. As part of this review, FSB is seeking feedback from stakeholders by July 04, 2018.

    The Summary Terms of Reference on the peer review provide more details on the objectives, scope, and process for this review. The aim of the peer review is to:

    • Evaluate progress in the adoption of requirements for bank resolution planning and resolvability assessments since the second (March 2016) resolution peer review
    • Take stock of resolution planning practices in FSB jurisdictions for domestically incorporated banks that could be systemically significant or critical if they fail, focusing in particular on banks other than G-SIBs
    • Highlight the range of practices and lessons of experience on bank resolution planning, including any challenges arising from implementation
    • Identify jurisdictions’ approaches to resolution planning for banks that could be systemic in failure, including how proportionality considerations are reflected in resolution planning for those banks
    • Identify material inconsistencies or gaps that are common across jurisdictions and make recommendations to address them to promote effective implementation

    The peer review report, which is expected to be published in the first half of 2019, will describe the resolution planning frameworks and practices in FSB jurisdictions, including the progress since the second resolution peer review. It will describe the steps that those jurisdictions have taken as part of resolution planning to develop resolution strategies, implement resolution plans, and address barriers to resolvability, also highlighting differences in approaches across jurisdictions and by types of banks that could be systemic in failure. Progress in implementation of resolution planning requirements and the development of resolution plans will be illustrated with examples of different practices and the identification of areas where more work may be needed.
