COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 680/2014

of 16 April 2014

laying down implementing technical standards with regard to supervisory reporting of institutions according to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms and amending Regulation (EU) No 648/2012 (1), and in particular the fourth subparagraph of Article 99(5); the fourth subparagraph of Article 99(6); the third subparagraph of Article 101(4); the third subparagraph of Article 394(4); the fourth subparagraph of Article 415(3) and the third subparagraph of Article 430(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Without prejudice to the competent authorities' powers under Article 104 (1) (j) of Directive 2013/36/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), with a view to increasing efficiency and reducing the administrative burden, a coherent reporting framework should be established on the basis of a harmonised set of standards.

(2)

The provisions in this Regulation are closely linked, since they deal with institutions' reporting requirements. To ensure coherence between those provisions, which should enter into force at the same time, and to facilitate a comprehensive view and compact access to them by persons subject to those obligations, it is desirable to include all related implementing technical standards required by Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 in a single Regulation.

(3)

The nature and complexity of institutions' activities such as trading book or non-trading book and approaches used for credit risk determine the extent of the actual reporting obligations of institutions. In addition, and in accordance with Article 99 (5) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, the reporting burden to institutions should be proportionate and reduced frequencies of reporting of certain templates should be introduced. Further, in order to take into account the nature, scale and complexity of institutions, template-specific materiality thresholds, should be introduced before certain reporting requirements are triggered.

(4)

Where reporting requirements are based on quantitative thresholds, in order to ensure a smooth transition to common supervisory reporting, template-specific entry and exit criteria should be introduced.

(5)

Institutions applying an accounting year that is different from the calendar year should be allowed to adjust reporting reference dates and remittance dates for reporting financial information, in order to alleviate, for such institutions, the burden of preparing the accounts for two different periods.

(6)

Financial information covers information on institutions' financial situation and potential systemic risks. The basic information on the financial situation is complemented with more detailed breakdowns to provide supervisors with information on risks of different activities. Institutions should therefore provide granular and uniform data especially on geographical and sectoral breakdowns and significant counterparties of exposures and funding in order to provide supervisory authorities with information on potential concentrations and build-ups of systemic risks.

(7)

In order to ensure consistency and comparability of information, where competent authorities require institutions to report information on own funds by using International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), as applicable under Regulation (EC) No 1606/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3), and extends this reporting requirement also to the reporting of financial information, institutions should report financial information in a manner similar to that of institutions preparing their consolidated accounts using IFRS, as applicable under Regulation (EC) No 1606/2002.

(8)

Similarly, in order to ensure consistency and comparability of information, where competent authorities require institutions using national accounting standards to report financial information by virtue of Article 99 (6), these institutions should report financial information in a manner similar to that of institutions using IFRS, as applicable under Regulation (EC) No 1606/2002, for reporting adjusted based on national accounting standards.

(9)

As there is a multitude of different reporting requirements at national and Union level for purposes other than those established by Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, such as statistical data, monetary data, Pillar II data any rules on the common supervisory reporting can only be part of an overall reporting framework. Using one IT solution which applies to the overall reporting framework is more cost efficient compared to specifying different IT solutions for individual parts of that overall reporting framework. In order to avoid having to require institutions to report necessary information using one specific IT solution while applying other IT solutions for other reporting requirements, and with the view to avoiding unjustified implementation and operating costs, a Data Point Model and defined minimum precision requirements should be developed, so as to ensure that the different IT solutions in place produce harmonised data as well as reliable data quality. Further, in order to reduce the reporting burden for institutions, provided that the necessary requirements are fully met, competent authorities should be allowed to continue to define alternative presentations and data exchange formats currently also used for other reporting purposes. In that respect, competent authorities should be allowed to not require data points that can be derived from other data points included in the data point model, or data points referring to information that is already collected by the competent authority.

(10)

Given the novelty of reporting requirements in some jurisdictions in relation to financial information and in relation to liquidity reporting requirements, and with the view to providing institutions with adequate time to implement those requirements in a manner that will produce data of high quality, a deferred application date should apply in relation to those reporting requirements.

(11)

Given the first time application of common supervisory reporting in the Union and the need for institutions to adapt their reporting and IT systems to the common supervisory reporting requirements, institutions should have longer remittance dates for monthly reports during the first year of application of the common supervisory reporting.

(12)

This Regulation is based on the draft implementing technical standards submitted by the European Banking Authority to the Commission.

(13)

The European Banking Authority has conducted open public consultations on the draft implementing technical standards on which this Regulation is based, analysed the potential related costs and benefits and requested the opinion of the Banking Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 37 of Regulation (EU) No 1093/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4),
