European Banking Authority Mediates Disagreement on Two Cross-Border Banking Groups' Resolution Plans
06/18/2018The European Banking Authority has published a redacted Decision on the disagreement between the Single Resolution Board and the National Bank of Romania, in their capacity as national resolution authorities under the EU Bank Recovery & Resolution Directive and the Single Resolution Mechanism Regulation. The Decision is the first that the EBA has made in its role as mediator between two resolution authorities responsible for agreeing the resolution plan for a EU cross-border banking group. The SRB and NRB failed to reach agreement on the resolution plan for two different banking groups. The EBA's Decision relates to both cases as the underlying facts and situation were similar.
The EBA's Decision requires the SRB and NRB to include detailed resolvability assessments and a consideration of the impediments to resolvability within any resolution plan that is adopted by either or both of the parties. Both resolution authorities must report within one month of the Decision to the EBA on the steps that they have taken to comply with the Decision and must make subsequent reports on a quarterly basis until the adoption of a joint decision on a group resolution plan.
