The Presidency has published a compromise text of the proposed Recovery and Resolution Directive for credit institutions and investment firms (RRD).  The compromise adds several new provisions, including:

  • powers for regulators to waive certain requirements if they feel a failure of a covered institution will not have a sufficiently serious effect;
  • a new framework for assessing trigger points for recovery plan operation (now called “indicators”);
  • new powers for competent authorities relating to the resolvability of groups; and
  • changes to a number of definitions.
