The FSB’s discussion paper explores how general and firm-specific disclosures on resolution planning and resolvability could be further enhanced, focusing mainly on disclosures of resolution planning for G-SIBs. However, many of the disclosure approaches discussed are also relevant for domestic systemically important banks and other firms subject to a resolution planning requirement.

Transparency with respect to resolution planning and resolvability is a necessary element of the FSB and G20 policy framework for addressing the moral hazard risk posed by systemically important financial institutions.

Responses to the discussion paper should be sent to by Friday 2 August. Consultation responses will determine whether the development of guidance would be useful. Responses to the consultation will be published on the FSB’s website unless respondents expressly request otherwise.
