The European Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) is the European Union’s (EU) implementation of the Financial Stability Board’s Key Attributes on Effective Resolution Regimes for Financial Institutions. The EU directive creates a minimum harmonization regime for resolution of banks and investment firms in the EU. The implementation date for EU member states was January 1, 2015 (with the exception of the part on the bail-in resolution tool, which enters into force one year later).
The implementation of the BRRD is currently ongoing in all EU member states, and is at different stages of the respective legislative process. In order to keep track of the status of implementation, ISDA has launched the BRRD Implementation Monitor that covers all EU/EFTA/EEA member states. The BRRD Implementation Monitor has a particular focus on the derivatives-specific provisions, and will be updated on a regular basis to reflect the progress made in each jurisdiction.
