Issue guidance to banks to routinely prepare recovery plans for dealing with potential shocks to their capital and/or liquidity, and to review and provide feedback to banks on those plans; ? Prepare resolution plans for banks and their groups; ? Identify and remedy impediments to timely and effective resolution of banks;? Submit Deposit Insurance Scheme (DIS) legislation to parliament; ? Adopt a formal policy framework for emergency liquidity assistance (ELA); ? Specify the role of the Financial Stability Committee (FinStab) in resolution activities; and ?
