On March 9, 2015, the EBA published a consultation paper on draft Regulatory Technical Standards and Guidelines on business reorganization plans under the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive. Under the BRRD, a financial institution that has been resolved by a resolution authority must prepare a business reorganization plan that sets out the measures the financial institution will take to restore its viability and operability. The draft RTS set out the minimum requirements that must be included in the institution’s business reorganization plan, such as the identification of the causes of failure and financial performance projections. The Guidelines set out the criteria that resolution authorities must take into account when assessing and approving business reorganization plans, such as assessing the credibility and strategies of those plans. Comments on the consultation paper may be submitted until June 9, 2015.
