This chapter explores some key provisions of the European Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) and how it relates to deposit protection provided by the European Directive on Deposit Guarantee Schemes (DGS). It explains the structure and roles of the agencies that comprise a financial system safety net and the pertinent features of the arrangements that have been widely adopted. In particular, the chapter considers the provisions of the Directive respecting which agency within the safety net should have responsibility for bank resolutions, the ‘bail-in’ provisions embodied within the Directive, and significant issues that have yet to be addressed fully. In doing so it examines how the EU Directive lines up with work undertaken by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) and the International Association of Deposit Insurers (IADI).
