About the consultation

​​​​We want your views on plans to transfer the functions of the Jersey Bank Depositors Compensation Scheme (“the DCS Board”) to the Jersey Resolution Authority.

We are proposing an amendment to the Bank (Recovery and Resolution (Jersey) Law 2017 (the “Resolution Law”) to transfer the functions of the DCS Board and necessary legislation establishing the Jersey Bank Depositors Compensation Scheme (“the Scheme”) currently contained in the Banking Business (Deposi​tors Compensation) (Jersey) Regulations 2009.

We are also consulting on further proposals to:

  • make necessary changes to the DCS legislation to support the effective delivery of the Scheme
  • make necessary amendment to Article 72 of the Resolution Law to reflect its intended scope and to allow for effective application

We are not currently consulting on adjustments to the protected deposit value, adjustment to the liability cap or revisions to the eligible depositor definition.

We intend to transfer these functions by 1 January 2025. 

Ahead of publication of this consultation, we have worked with representatives of the JRA, DCS and JFSC to inform the proposal.
