EU Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD)

EU Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD)

The Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) establishes a common approach within the European Union (EU) to the recovery and resolution of banks and investment firms. The BRRD represents an important step forward in ensuring that the EU effectively addresses the risks posed by the banking system. The BRRD requires that competent authorities have the ability to intervene in a firm that is at risk of failing, in order to attempt to reverse the decline and avoid failure. BRRD requires Member States to ensure that their competent authorities have the power to require the removal and replacement of the board of directors and the senior management of an institution. This power may only be used where there is a significant deterioration in the financial situation of an institution, or where there are serious infringements of law, of regulations, or of the statutes of the institution, or serious administrative irregularities.
