    EC Publishes Regulation (EU) 2019/348 that Supplements BRRD

    March 04, 2019

    EC published the Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/348 on regulatory technical standards specifying the criteria for assessing the impact of the failure of an institution on financial markets, on other institutions, and on funding conditions. Regulation (EU) 2019/348 supplements the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive or BRRD (Directive 2014/59/EU) of the European Parliament and Council. Regulation (EU) 2019/348 shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

    BRRD requires the member states to ensure that competent and resolution authorities assess the impact that the failure of an institution could have due to a number of factors specified in that Article 4(1) of the Directive. This involves conducting assessment based on certain qualitative and quantitative criteria. The assessment based on qualitative criteria should only be conducted where the assessment on the basis of quantitative criteria does not lead to the conclusion that, in the light of the impact that the institution's failure could have, full obligations, rather than merely simplified obligations, are required. To ensure a convergent and effective application of Regulation (EU) 2019/348, competent and resolution authorities should assess the quantitative criteria against an EU common threshold in the form of a total quantitative score. Competent and resolution authorities should calculate that total quantitative score in accordance with a set of indicators, using the values from the applicable supervisory reporting framework laid down in Implementing Regulation (EU) No 680/2014.

    The first four articles of Regulation (EU) 2019/348 describe the qualitative and quantitative assessment criteria for credit institutions and investment firms. The regulation also addresses assessments for institutions belonging to groups (Article 5), promotional banks (Article 6), and credit institutions subject to an orderly winding-up process (Article 7). Considering the different purposes of recovery and resolution planning, competent and resolution authorities from the same member state may reach different conclusions about the application of Articles 1 to 4, 6 and 7, in which case they shall regularly assess whether those different conclusions remain justified. The first two Annexes to this regulation cover indicators and/or weights for calculating the total quantitative score for credit institutions and investment firms. The values of the indicators shall be determined on the basis of the indicators specified in Annex III. Regulation (EU) 2019/348 is based on the draft regulatory technical standards submitted by EBA to EC.
