II.1.4)Short description:

Several Member States supported some banks by providing relief for impaired assets. The Commission released in 2009 a communication paper on the ‘Treatment of impaired assets in the Community banking sector’. It assumes that the design of asset relief measures is primarily the responsibility of the Member State concerned, but their assessment under the state aid rules is the Commission's responsibility. For the assessment of valuation methods put forward by Member States for asset relief measures and their implementation in individual cases, the Commission could consult panels of valuation experts.

The Commission may also consult experts on the way to resolve problematic assets and associated liabilities envisaged by a Member State. Experts may be consulted on specific or general issues related to the compliance of the envisaged resolution mechanism with the conditions for finding aid compatible. These assessments will be done in the legislative context of the new SRM and BRRD.
