Bank capital adequacy - MREL.

In the context of the EU Minimum Requirement for own funds and Eligible Liabilities (MREL) for banks, eligible liabilities are ones which can be counted towards the bank's total regulatory loss-absorbing capacity.

Eligible liabilities are liabilities which can legally - and easily - be bailed-in to recapitalise the bank on its resolution.
