The SRB is the central resolution authority within the Banking Union (BU). Together with the National Resolution Authorities (NRAs) of participating Member States (MS), it forms the SRM. The SRB works closely with the NRAs, the European Commission (EC), the European Central Bank (ECB), the European Banking Authority (EBA) and national competent authorities (NCAs).
Resolution is the restructuring of a bank by a resolution authority through the use of resolution tools in order to safeguard public interests, including the continuity of the bank’s critical functions, financial stability and minimal costs to taxpayers.
The Single Resolution Fund (SRF) has been established by Regulation (EU) No 806/2014 (SRM Regulation). Where necessary, the SRF may be used to ensure the efficient application of resolution tools and the exercise of the resolution powers conferred to the SRB by the SRM Regulation.
