EBA published a report that examines the interlinkages between recovery and resolution planning under the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD). The comparative analysis of recovery and resolution plans by EBA indicates that further work is needed in this area to study the impact of resolution plans on recovery planning and develop further guidance on certain aspects of the interlinkage.
The report outlines the observations of EBA from its first comparative analysis of recovery and resolution plans and identifies best practices and areas where further improvement and/or clarifications are needed. In addition, on certain common elements between both types of plans, such as critical functions and access to central bank facilities, the report clarifies their specific purpose in each planning phase and the advantages or disadvantages of a potential convergence or harmonization. Finally, the report analyzes the potential impact of recovery options on the resolvability of an institution and introduces an assessment framework to support the assessment and consultation process between resolution and competent authorities. Annex 1 to the report includes a template used to perform comparative analysis of a sample of recovery and resolution plans while Annex 2 presents a practical tool to help resolution authorities in conducting the analyses of the potential impact of recovery options on the resolvability of an institution.
The assessment in this report is intended to enhance synergies between recovery and resolution planning phases and ensure consistency in their potential implementation. The findings of the comparative analysis of recovery and resolution plans reveal that further work is needed in this area. Therefore, EBA plans to perform further work on the impact of resolution plans—particularly the impact of measures to remove impediments to resolvability—on ongoing supervision and recovery planning. The guidance work on certain practical aspects of interlinkage, such as on the timelines of recovery and resolution planning cycles, will also be undertaken, as such work is deemed useful for enhancing interactions among competent authorities and the resolution authorities.
