Amending the bank resolution framework – BRRD and SRMR

06-06-2017

The completion and implementation of the significant overhaul of the financial regulatory framework in response to the financial crisis, including the revision of the resolution framework for banks, remains a major area of the European Commission's work. On 23 November 2016, the Commission proposed amending the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) and the Single Resolution Mechanism Regulation (SRMR) in order to incorporate international standards on loss-absorption and recapitalisation; the proposals incorporate the total loss-absorbing capacity (TLAC) set by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), an international standard-setter.
