Headline: EBA monitors the use of the proportionality principle for recovery and resolution planning
The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today its second Report on the application of simplified obligations and waivers under the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) across the EU. The Report presents the results of the EBA monitoring on how competent and resolution authorities have applied the principle of proportionality for recovery and resolution planning in their respective jurisdictions, and describes the current level of convergence in this area. The EBA observed an increase in a number of authorities applying simplified obligations for less significant banks, especially for resolution planning purposes. There was a higher convergence when assessing which institutions are eligible for simplified obligations. However, significant divergences remained in determining reduced requirements for institutions benefiting from simplified regimes where the regulatory framework does not provide detailed guidance.
