    EBA Consults on Guidelines to Improve Bank Resolvability

    March 17, 2021

    EBA proposed the guidelines on improving resolvability of banks. These guidelines set out the resolvability requirements for institutions or resolution groups for which the strategy involves the use of resolution powers as opposed to a liquidation procedure. The bulk of the guidelines are addressed to institutions, though some requirements also target the resolution authorities as they need to assist institutions in improving resolvability. The comment period for the proposed guidelines ends on June 17, 2021, with the final guidelines being aimed for publication by the first half of 2021. EBA stipulates that institutions and authorities in scope of these guidelines should comply in full by January 01, 2024.

    The guidelines aim to implement existing international standards on resolvability and take stock of the best practices developed by EU resolution authorities on resolvability topics. The guidelines set out requirements to improve resolvability in the areas of operational continuity in resolution, access to financial market infrastructures, funding and liquidity in resolution, bail-in execution, business reorganization, and communication. However, they do not cover all topics relevant to resolvability either because those topics are covered elsewhere (for example, the calibration and eligibility of loss absorbing capacity is extensively covered in BRRD Directive) or because those topics will be further specified in future EBA regulatory products (for example, transferability). Certain requirements laid down in these guidelines may be resolution-tool-specific (for example, bail-in playbook) and the extent of their application to other resolution tools is left to the discretion of the resolution authority. To ensure proportionality, these guidelines are not mandatorily applicable for institutions, groups, or resolution groups that benefit from the simplified obligation regime, for which the extent of their possible application is left to the discretion of the relevant resolution authorities. These guidelines will be updated on a regular basis as progress is achieved on relevant policy topics, both at international and EU levels.
