Recovery and resolution of credit institutions and investment firms
Directive 2014/59/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council, establishing a framework for the recovery and resolution of credit institutions and investment firms (BRRD) was adopted on 15 May 2014. By 31 December 2014, Member States were required to adopt and publish the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with it.
