EBA to centralise notifications on resolution cases and use of DGS funds across the EU

Default: Change to:

The European Banking Authority set up a dedicated section on its website to centralise information on crisis prevention, management liquidation and resolution of credit institutions in the Union based on the notifications received from the respective national authorities.

This will ensure that all information covering DGS intervention cases, liquidation cases with DGS payouts and resolution of institutions in the EU is available to all interested parties through the EBA hub in an easily accessible and consistent fashion.

Under the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) on crisis prevention, management and resolution, the EBA is mandated  to develop a wide range of Technical Standards, Guidelines and Reports with the aim of ensuring effective and consistent procedures across the Union, in particular with respect to cross-border financial institutions. The ultimate objective of the BRRD framework is to enhance financial stability, reduce moral hazard, protect depositors and critical financial services, save public money and ensure the smooth functioning of the internal market for financial services. The BRRD is complemented by the Deposit Guarantee Scheme Directive (DGSD), which also assigns rulemaking tasks to the EBA, and by other forthcoming regulatory initiatives on financial institutions other than banks. The DGSD aims to facilitate access to the internal market through the freedom of establishment and the freedom to provide financial services while increasing the stability of the banking system and the protection of depositors.
