On May 20, 2015, the EBA published three sets of final guidelines on the implementation of the resolution tools under the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive. The final guidelines, which will apply to national resolution authorities from August 1, 2015, are: (i) guidelines on the determination of when the liquidation of assets or liabilities under normal insolvency proceedings could have an adverse effect on one or more financial markets; (ii) guidelines on factual circumstances amounting to a material threat to financial stability and on the elements related to the effectiveness of the sale of business tool; and (iii) guidelines on the minimum list of services or facilities that are necessary to enable a recipient to operate a business transferred to it under the BRRD.
