The Systemic Resolution Advisory Committee, an arm of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), is set to meet June 21 in Washington.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 gives the FDIC a role in resolving problems at any “systemically important financial company” – including a systemically important, failing insurer that is neglected by its home state regulator.

The Systemic Resolution Advisory Committee “will provide advice and recommendations on a broad range of issues regarding the resolution of systemically important financial companies,” the FDIC says in a notice published in the Federal Register.

The committee’s first meeting will be open to the public.
