Home > United Kingdom > EBA`s final report on the draft RTS on contractual recognition of rights of residence The ESBG also stresses the need to address the issue of retroactivity, according to which the new requirements should not have retroactive effect on contractual recognition clauses for liquidation stays that have already been implemented in existing contractual relations, that is, the old agreements. Finally, contractual recognition clauses should be subject to the same applicable law as that which applies to the financial contract to which they relate, rather than necessarily to the law of a Union court. The final draft of RTS also defines the content of the period of contractual recognition of residence permits. EBA`s approach aims to strike a balance between the need for harmonisation and the need for flexibility in order to take into account all issues relating to the legislation of a particular third country or the nature of the financial contract. This draft RTS defines the content of the contractual clause to be included in the relevant financial contracts where there is no other (i.e. legal) mechanism to ensure that the counterparty recognises the powers of the resolution authority to suspend or restrict rights and obligations. The approach proposed by EBA aims to strike a balance between the need to ensure harmonisation and the need for flexibility to take into account the specificities of the legislation or type of financial contract of a given third country. In accordance with Article 71a(1) of the BRRD, Member States shall require the institutions and bodies referred to in points (b), (c) and (d) of Article 1(1) of that Directive to include in each financial contract they conclude and which is governed by the law of a third country terms under which the parties recognise that the financial contract is intended to exercise the powers of the resolution authority to suspend or to limit the rights and obligations in accordance with Article 33a: 69, 70 and 71 BRRD and recognise that they are bound by the requirements of Article 68 BRRD. Where an institution or entity does not contain the necessary contractual clause, this shall not prevent the resolution authority from applying the powers referred to in Articles 33a, 68, 69, 70 or 71 in respect of that financial contract. These regulatory technical standards (RTS) support the effective application of temporary restrictions on early termination rights (settlement suspensions) in respect of financial contracts governed by the law of a third country. The approach taken by EBA raises several concerns, including the proposed mandatory key elements, which are too detailed and rigid and could impose an excessive burden on market participants without further improving legal certainty. These draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) for the contractual recognition of suspension powers under the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) support the effective application of temporary restrictions on the right of early termination (settlement suspensions) in respect of financial contracts governed by the law of a third country.

In particular, they shall specify the content of the contractual clause to be included in the relevant financial contracts where there is no other mechanism (i.B i.e. statutory) to ensure that the counterparty recognises the powers of the resolution authority to suspend or restrict rights and obligations. These technical standards aim to ensure the efficient use of Stay Power. Where financial contracts are governed by the law of a third country, the BRRD requires that such contracts contain a contractual recognition clause by which the parties acknowledge that the contract may be subject to these suspension powers and agree to be bound by their effect. On the 16th. In December 2020, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published its final report (the report) on the new contractual recognition of residence permits (CROS) introduced by Article 71a of EU Directive 2014/59 (EU Directive on the Recovery and Resolution of Credit Institutions or BRRD). The report includes draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) setting out the elements that EBA considers should be mandatory in croso clauses. The EBA has published the final draft regulatory technical standards for the contractual recognition of suspension powers under the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD). The technical standards shall contain further specifications of elements essential to ensure the effectiveness of the resolution regime established by the BRRD.

These standards are part of the EBA`s extensive work programme to implement the BRRD and address the problem of banks that are too big to fail. Draft technical standards are submitted to the EC for approval before being published in the Official Journal of the European Union. Technical standards shall apply from the twentieth day following that of their publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. In accordance with Article 71a(5) brRD, EBA has proposed, in the draft rts, a list of mandatory elements to be included in the duration of the contract required by financial contracts. These include provisions in which the recognition and assumption that the mandate may be subject to the exercise of powers by the resolution authority, a description of the powers concerned and the recognition of the parties that those powers oblige them to suspend certain obligations and restrict certain rights and that they are bound by the requirements of Article 68 of the BRRD. In addition, the parties must acknowledge that no other contractual clause will affect the validity and enforceability of this clause. EBA notes that this approach aims to strike a balance between achieving an appropriate level of convergence and ensuring that differences in the legal systems of third countries and other differences resulting from different forms of financial contracts can be taken into account by resolution authorities, institutions and entities concerned by adding additional elements where necessary: in order to achieve the policy objective of ensuring that suspended or restrictive rights and obligations can be effectively exercised in respect of financial contracts governed by the law of a third country. On 16 December 2020, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published a final report containing the draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) to be developed in accordance with Article 71a(5) of the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD).

In accordance with Article 71a(5) of the BRRD, EBA shall develop draft rts rules to define the content of the contractual clause to be included in the financial contracts concerned, taking into account the different business models of institutions and entities.
