Where a resolution measure is taken in relation to any BRRD undertaking or any member of the same group as that BRRD undertaking and that BRRD undertaking or any member of the same group as that BRRD undertaking is a party to this Agreement (any such party to this Agreement being an “Affected Party”), each other party to this Agreement agrees that it shall only be entitled to exercise any termination right under this Agreement against the Affected Party to the extent that it would be entitled to do so under the Special Resolution Regime if this Agreement were governed by the laws of any part of the United Kingdom.
For the purpose of this Section 46, “resolution measure” means a ‘crisis prevention measure’, ‘crisis management measure’ or ‘recognised third-country resolution action’, each with the meaning given in the “PRA Rulebook: CRR Firms and Non-Authorised Persons: Stay in Resolution Instrument 2015”, as may be amended from time to time (the “PRA Contractual Stay Rules”), provided, however, that ‘crisis prevention measure’ shall be interpreted in the manner outlined in Rule 2.3 of the PRA Contractual Stay Rules; “Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (“BRRD”) undertaking”, “group”, “Special Resolution Regime” and “termination right” have the respective meanings given in the PRA Contractual Stay Rules.”
