On January 22, 2015, the Council Implementing Regulation specifying uniform conditions for implementing the obligation of the Single Resolution Board to calculate the contributions of individual institutions to the Single Resolution Fund under the Single Resolution Mechanism was published in the Official Journal of the European Union. The Single Resolution Fund is intended to   be used following exercise of resolution powers, for example as a shareholder for a “good bank” created on a good bank/bad bank split. It will be contributed to by banks potentially subject to the resolution regime. The Single Resolution Mechanism applies to banks in Eurozone and to banks in EU Member States participating in the Single Supervisory Mechanism. The Regulation will apply from January 1, 2016 or such time as the available financial means of the Single Resolution Fund, as set out under the  Single Resolution Mechanism, are met.

The Regulation is available at: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=uriserv:OJ.L_.2015.015.01.0001.01.ENG.
