COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2016/1434

of 14 December 2015

correcting Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/63 supplementing Directive 2014/59/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to ex ante contributions to resolution financing arrangements

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Directive 2014/59/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 May 2014 establishing a framework for the recovery and resolution of credit institutions and investment firms and amending Council Directive 82/891/EEC, and Directives 2001/24/EC, 2002/47/EC, 2004/25/EC, 2005/56/EC, 2007/36/EC, 2011/35/EU, 2012/30/EU and 2013/36/EU, and Regulations (EU) No 1093/2010 and (EU) No 648/2012, of the European Parliament and of the Council (1), and in particular Article 103(7) and (8) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Some errors appear in all language versions of the text of Articles 5(1)(f), 5(3), 6(9), 12(1), 14(1), 20(1) and 20(5) of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/63 (2).

(2)

Article 5(1)(f) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/63 erroneously contains the word ‘original’ reducing thereby the scope of the exclusion relating to the liabilities of promotional banks. The policy objective would be clarified by the deletion of the word ‘original’.

(3)

In Article 5(3) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/63 the reference to Article 429(6) and (7) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) should be updated to take into consideration the amendments introduced by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/62 (4). The reference should be replaced with a reference to Articles 429, 429a and 429b of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

(4)

In Article 14(1) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/63, it should be clarified that it refers to the latest approved annual financial statements available, at the latest, on 31 December of the year preceding the contribution period, and not before 31 December.

(5)

Article 20(1) contains a typographical error. The deadline should be aligned with the deadline in paragraph 4 of that Article and changed to 1 September 2015.

(6)

Article 20(5) needs to be aligned with Article 8(5) of Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/81 (5) in order to ensure consistency within the internal market and in Union law. The policy objective was reflected in the Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/81 but erroneously not in Article 20(5) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/63.

(7)

Further errors appear in the German version of the text of Articles 14(1), 15(2) and 16(1) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/63.

(8)

Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/63 should therefore be corrected accordingly.

(9)

The errors in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/63 require a correction to ensure a level playing field in the internal market. For this reason, this Correcting Regulation should apply retroactively as of 1 January 2015,
