    EBA Proposes MREL Reporting Standards Under BRRD2

    July 24, 2020

    EBA proposed implementing technical standards that specify uniform reporting templates, instructions, and methodology for identification and transmission of information on minimum requirements for own funds and eligible liabilities (MREL). The previous technical standards on MREL reporting from resolution authorities to EBA will be substituted by these new draft technical standards, to account for the changes introduced through the revised Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive or BRRD2 (2019/879/EU). The consultation runs until October 24, 2020. EBA also published the draft reporting template and instructions as annexes to the consultation paper.

    The resolution authorities must use the specified templates and instructions when transmitting information regarding the MREL requirements to EBA. Reporting by institutions to resolution or competent authorities is outside of the scope of this reporting framework.The templates laid down in the Annexes to the technical standards provide for reporting on each component of the decision in compliance with the methodology laid down in BRRD. This information will help EBA in monitoring and promoting the consistent application of the legal framework on MREL. If the MREL has not been waived but the recapitalization amount has been set to zero in line with Article 45c(2), second subparagraph, of the BRRD, a simplified reporting is allowed. Resolution authorities will set a recapitalization amount equal to zero where the resolvability assessment concludes that liquidation under normal insolvency proceedings is feasible and credible. A zero recapitalization amount is likely to be the case for a significant number of smaller institutions. However, where MREL has not been waived, that the recapitalization amount has been set to zero but that the loss-absorbing amount has been adjusted, the draft implementing standards provide for full reporting

    BRRD (2014/59/EU) establishes a framework for the recovery and resolution of credit institutions, investment firms, and related entities. BRRD provides that resolution authorities, in cooperation with relevant competent authorities, shall ensure that institutions meet at all times a minimum requirement for own funds and liabilities eligible for bail-in. BRRD has been amended by BRRD2 to include provisions detailing the new requirements on MREL subordination levels and the MREL applicable to resolution entities and entities that are not resolution entities. MREL must be set for each and every institution based on the criteria laid down in the BRRD, as amended. The draft technical standards substitute the previous technical standards on MREL reporting, to properly reflect the changes introduced in the BRRD2.
