To that end, the precise amount that individual credit institutions will have to pay each year to their respective resolution funds needs to be determined. This amount will depend on the bank's size and risk profile. The risk adjustment of individual contributions in proportion to the risk profile of institutions is based on criteria set out in the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive but these criteria have to be specified in greater detail by the Commission in a delegated act.

What does the public consultation cover?
Input is requested on key elements related to the calculation of contributions:
Calculation of contributions: What should be the level at which the contributions of groups are calculated: individual or consolidated level?

Should small credit institutions pay a flat fee only or just a lump sum? What should be the threshold -in terms of size- for the definition of small credit institutions?
Weight of the flat contribution versus risk adjusted contribution: Should the flat part be the most prominent part of the contributions or should the risk-adjusted part be the most prominent part of the contributions?
