Recovery & Resolution Directive - RRD Reporting

7th April 2016

Recovery and Resolution Directive (RRD)

From the tail end of last year a number of FCA regulated investment firms will have noticed Recovery and Resolution Directive (RRD) deadlines appearing in their GABRIEL reporting schedules.

Whilst most of the new prudential sourcebook rules to implement the [Bank] Recovery and Resolution Directive (RRD) for investment firms came into force last year (19 January 2015), the remainder – such as those in relation to the contractual recognition of bail-in, only took effect at the start of 2016, on 1st January 2016.

This means that relevant firms will be required to make their first RRD return in GABRIEL this year in accordance with their GABRIEL reporting schedules.

What is the RRD?

The [Bank] Recovery and Resolution Directive, or RRD was an initiative adopted at EU level in May 2014 with the aim to reduce the future threat of financial instability from the failure of banks and investment firms.

The RRD returns by firms are to be submitted in GABRIEL in accordance with article 9 (1) of RRD and the IFPRU sourcebook (rule 11.2.15 for firms or 11.3.17 for Groups), whereby firms must notify the FCA without delay if they:

Requirements for Recovery Plans & Resolution Plan Information

Chapter 11 of the Prudential Sourcebook for Investment Firms (IFPRU) covers the requirements for firms in relation to ‘Recovery & Resolution,’ however there are also additional rules with regards to information for resolution plans and the submission of recovery plans within the FCA’s Supervision manual.

Firms will note that there are two separate reporting date and requirements for the RRD returns in GABRIEL with ‘REP006’ designated for Recovery Plans and ‘REP007’ for Resolution Plan Information, with both GABRIEL returns requiring firms to submit suitable attachments upon completing their submissions.
