The Crisis Management and Deposit Insurance (CMDI) legal framework brought important benefits in terms of protecting financial stability while avoiding contagion, safeguarding the functioning of the single market, minimising recourse to taxpayers money, significantly improving depositor protection and contributing to boosting consumers’ confidence in the EU banking sector. However, according to the European Commission, it could be further improved especially with regard to smaller and medium-sized banks. This article presents an overview of the European Commission’s legislative proposals addressing those shortcomings and aimed at strengthening the CMDI legal framework, which was presented in April 2023. The core part of this reform is made up of three legislative proposals amending the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (Directive 2014/59/EU), the Single Resolution Mechanism Regulation (Regulation 806/2014) and the Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive (Directive 2014/49/EU). The fourth legislative proposal, would amend the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive and the Single Resolution Mechanism Regulation with regard to targeted provisions on minimum requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities.
