On November 10, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) published a consultation paper on proposals on the adequacy of total loss-absorbing capacity (TLAC) of global systemically important banks (G-SIBs) in resolution.

In the consultation, the FSB seeks views on principles on loss absorbing capacity of G-SIBs in resolution, covering issues such as the calibration of the amount of TLAC required, the determination of TLAC-eligible instruments and the consequences of breaches of the requirement.  The deadline for responses to the consultation is February 2, 2015.
