Consultation on the reorganisation and winding-up of credit institutions

The European Commission has launched a public consultation on the Directive (2001/24/EC) on reorganisation and winding up of credit institutions. The aim of the consultation is to examine whether the Directive completely fulfils its objectives, whether it could be extended to cross border banking groups, and how obstacles related to asset transferability within such groups can be addressed.
