Proposal to amend rules on bank recovery and resolution


On 23 November 2016 the Commission proposed amendments to the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) and to the banking prudential requirements directive and regulation (known as CRD IV/CRR). The amendments include measures that will further strengthen the European resolution framework and the ability of relevant authorities to achieve resolution outcomes that are effective in safeguarding financial stability and public funds.

On 16 April 2019 the European Parliament endorsed the final agreement on a comprehensive set of reforms proposed by the Commission to strengthen further resilience and resolvability of EU banks.
