The PRA published a policy statement PS18/17 that provides feedback to responses to consultation paper CP46/16 titled “IFRS 9: changes to reporting requirements.” PS18/17 sets out the final rules intended to update regulatory reporting requirements and expectations, in light of the introduction of International Financial Reporting Standard 9 (IFRS 9) from January 01, 2018. The PRA also updated the supervisory statement SS34/15, following PS18/17, with the effective date for the updates being January 01, 2018.
PS18/17 contains the final amendments to the Regulatory Reporting Part of the PRA Rulebook (Appendix 1) and final amendments to Supervisory Statement SS34/15 titled “Guidelines for completing regulatory reports” (Appendix 2), which implements the proposals in the consultation paper. The PRA had received seven responses to CP46/16. Respondents were generally supportive of the proposals but did raise a number of issues and questions regarding the details of the templates. The responses are discussed in PS18/17 by the following topics: granularity of reporting templates; implementation timeline; and reporting on an individual or consolidated basis. Following consideration of respondents’ comments, the PRA has made one material change to the rules as consulted. The PRA has also made a minor change to take account of firms that are implementing IFRS 9 in advance of January 01, 2018. Responses are set out in Chapter 2.
PS18/17 should be read along with the Regulatory Reporting Part of the PRA Rulebook. The amendments to the Regulatory Reporting Part of the PRA Rulebook and updates to SS34/15 set out in this PS18/17 will take effect from January 01, 2018. Chapter 2 and Appendices 1 to 4 of SS34/15 took effect from January 01, 2016, except PRA101-103, which takes effect from October 01, 2017 and PRA104-108, which takes effect from January 01, 2018. Appendix 2 took effect from July 01, 2017; Appendices 5 to 7 took effect from March 07, 2016; Appendix 8 takes effect from January 01, 2018; Appendix 9 takes effect from January 01, 2019; and Appendix 10 takes effect from January 01, 2019. PS18/17 is relevant to the UK banks and building societies. As set out in CP46/16, firms are required to submit their templates 30 business days after the end of their first reporting period. Firms should use the EBA taxonomy (initially version 2.7) to report their templates and adhere to the EBA filing and validation rules, which apply to the subset of templates required. Further details on the implementation timeline are available in Chapter 2, including details on rule modifications and notifications available for firms that do not have an accounting year end of December 31 and UK banks that plan to implement IFRS 9 in advance of January 01, 2018.
