The minimum requirements for improving the resolvability of companies are structured according to seven dimensions, which are governance, loss-absorbing and recapitalization capacity, liquidity and funding, operational continuity and access to financial market infrastructure services, information systems and data requirements, communication, and separability and restructuring. The concerned institutions must implement the minimum requirements by January 01, 2024.

The measure provides for a minimum average risk-weight to be adhered to by institutions using the internal ratings based (IRB) approach in relation to their portfolios of exposures to natural persons secured by residential property located in the Netherlands. The order is intended to implement a recommendation, by the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB), on the assessment of cross-border effects of and voluntary reciprocity for macro-prudential policy measures. BaFin is requesting comments on the draft order by September 12, 2022.
