EBA Publishes Amended Standards on Supervisory Reporting for Institutions

The European Banking Authority (“EBA“) has published its final draft Implementing Technical Standards (“ITS“) amending the Commission’s Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 680/2014 on supervisory reporting. The EBA is required to develop ITS specifying supervisory reporting in the areas of own funds, financial information, losses stemming from lending collateralized by immovable property, large exposures, leverage ratio, liquidity ratios, asset encumbrance, additional liquidity monitoring metrics and supervisory benchmarking.

The final ITS include minor changes to templates and instructions which reflect some of the answers published in the EBA’s Single Rulebook Q&A, align with disclosure requirements for capital buffers and correct legal references and other clerical errors. The amendments are expected to be applicable for reporting from December 2016.
