The guidance is divided into five parts: 1) general issues; 2) interrelationships among safety net participants and cross-border issues; 3) powers accorded to the deposit insurer; 4) operational and administrative issues related to resolutions; and 5) specific issues related to the resolution of failing or failed bank. Establishing an appropriate resolution framework and clarifying the roles and responsibilities of the financial safety net participants within it are central issues and are highly dependent on a country's political, cultural, financial, legal and supervisory circumstances.
