PRA published the final Policy Statement PS13/19 on regulatory reporting amendments and clarifications to the Pillar 2 liquidity framework for banks in UK. PS13/19 also provides feedback to responses to the Consultation Paper CP6/19 titled "Pillar 2 liquidity: Updates to the framework." The updated PRA110 template and reporting instructions will take effect from January 01, 2020. Additionally, PRA published version 5 of the PRA110 questions and answers (Q&As), which supersedes the version that was published on March 19, 2019. The new or updated Q&As appear in italics and under the PRA110 row/column to which they refer, where possible.
PRA received nine responses to CP6/19. Respondents did not express concerns on most of the proposals, but did raise some issues and requests for clarifications. Chapter 2 of PS13/19 sets out the PRA feedback to these response, along with the final decisions. Appendices to PS13/19 contain the final policy in the form of updates to the following:
- Regulatory Reporting Part of the PRA Rulebook (Appendix 1)
- Statement of Policy on Pillar 2 liquidity (Appendix 2)
- Supervisory Statement SS24/15 on the PRA approach to supervising liquidity and funding risks (Appendix 3)
- SS34/15 on guidelines for completing regulatory reports (Appendix 4)
- PRA110 template and reporting instructions (Appendices 5 and 6, respectively)
Annex A of the rule instrument amending the Regulatory Reporting Part of the PRA Rulebook (Appendix 1), the updated Statement of Policy (Appendix 2), the updated SS24/15 (Appendix 3), and the updated SS34/15 (Appendix 4) will take effect from July 01, 2019. The updated PRA110 template and reporting instructions (appendices 5 and 6) and Annex B of the rule instrument amending the Regulatory Reporting Part of the PRA Rulebook (Appendix 1) will take effect from January 01, 2020. PS13/19 is relevant to UK banks, building societies, PRA-designated investment firms, and non-EU European Economic Area banks, referred to collectively as "firms" in this Policy Statement.
The policy in PS13/19 has been designed in the context of the current UK and EU regulatory framework. PRA has assessed that the policy will be affected in the event that the UK leaves the EU with no implementation period in place. The final Statement of Policy, SS24/15, and SS34/15 attached to PS13/19 should be read in conjunction with SS1/19 titled "Non-binding PRA materials: The PRA’s approach after the UK’s withdrawal from the EU." The changes being made to the Regulatory Reporting Part of the Rulebook should be read in conjunction with SS2/19 titled "PRA approach to interpreting reporting and disclosure requirements and regulatory transactions forms after the UK’s withdrawal from the EU."
