    ECB Opinions on Capital Requirements and Crisis Management Frameworks

    November 10, 2017

    ECB published opinions on amendments to the EU framework for capital requirements of credit institutions and investment firms (CON/2017/46) and on revisions to the Union crisis management framework (CON/2017/47).

    CON/2017/46 addresses issues related to changes to the existing EU regulatory and supervisory framework and the implementation of internationally agreed supervisory standards. CON/2017/47 addresses issues related to implementation of the total loss-absorbing capacity (TLAC) standard in the EU; amendments to the minimum requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities (MREL); transitional arrangements for MREL; early intervention measures; pre-resolution moratorium tool; and “failing or likely to fail” assessment for less significant credit institutions under the direct responsibility of the Single Resolution Board.

    ECB received requests from the Council of the EU and the European Parliament, respectively, for an opinion on proposed amendments to Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR), Capital Requirements Directive (CRD), Single Resolution Mechanism Regulation, and Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD). ECB’s competence to deliver an opinion is based on Articles 127(4) and 282(5) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU since the proposed amending regulations and directives contain provisions affecting ECB’s tasks on policies related to the prudential supervision of credit institutions in accordance with Article 127(6) of the Treaty and the European System of Central Banks’ contribution to the smooth conduct of policies pursued by the competent authorities relating to the stability of the financial system, as referred to in Article 127(5) of the Treaty. In accordance with the first sentence of Article 17.5 of the Rules of Procedure of ECB, the Governing Council has adopted these opinions.
