After the COVID-19 crisis has subsided, the (further) harmonization of bank insolvency law will again be high on the agenda of EU regulators and policy makers. On the basis of an analysis of the status quo pain points, the paper advocates the extension of the BRRD resolution regime to all bank failures, regardless of their systemic relevance. This could be achieved by removing the public interest requirement as part of the resolution trigger. The ensuing consolidation would significantly reduce complexity and enhance the transparency and legitimacy of the EU crisis management framework.
