In view of the challenges posed by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the US Agencies (FDIC and FED) have decided to extend certain submission dates for the resolution plans for 2020 and 2021. The agencies have extended the submission date by 90 days, to September 29, 2020, for the resolution plans from Barclays, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, and UBS. The agencies have also extended the submission date for the 2021 resolution plan by 90 days, to September 29, 2021, for the targeted resolution plans from the large foreign and domestic banks in Category II and Category III of the agencies' large bank regulatory framework. Additionally, the agencies have released a list of 14 domestic and foreign banks that are required to submit the resolution plans by September 29, 2021.
Targeted resolution plans for the eight global systemically important banking organizations will remain due by July 01, 2021. The agencies will monitor conditions and may adjust the deadlines if warranted. The resolution plans to be submitted by September 29, 2020 are required to remediate certain weaknesses—deemed shortcomings—that have been previously identified by the agencies. These shortcomings were identified in a feedback letter dated December 20, 2018, wherein the agencies had identified shortcomings in certain covered companies' 2018 resolution plan submissions. The feedback letter provided that the 2020 resolution plan submissions should demonstrate that the shortcomings have been satisfactorily addressed and that various enhancement initiatives had been completed by the submission date.
