    ECB Updates Guidance on Reporting of Securities Holdings Statistics

    May 26, 2020

    ECB updated the guidance notes for reporting related to the statistics on holdings of securities by reporting banking groups (SHSG). The notes explain the methodology behind the reporting requirements and provide guidance on the approach that may be followed in cases where the relevant ECB legal act leaves scope for interpretation. ECB also updated the code list repository in which specific code lists for the SHSG data collection have been defined. As per the change log, due to Brexit, the code for UK has changed from 13GB (valid to the reference period of the fourth quarter of 2019) to 18GB (valid from the reference period of the first quarter of 2020); for the old code a transitional period will be applied until the reference period of the second quarter of 2020.

    The aim of the published guidance notes is to clarify the requirements and definitions laid down in the SHS Regulation. The notes also contain clarifications and examples for the requirements and definitions laid down in the SHS Regulation. The scope of the reporting as defined in Article 1(4) of the SHS Regulation follows the prudential approach as set out in Directive 2013/36/EU and Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR). Consequently, the security holdings of all domestic and foreign financial entities of the groups (captured by the prudential scope) have to be included in the reporting. The holdings of the appointed heads of banking groups have to be reported as well. The guidance notes for reporting agents contain the following information:

    • Scope of the SHSG data collection
    • Specifications with regard to the instrument categories covered
    • Summary of  general reporting requirements
    • Detailed description of the attributes included in the reporting with a breakdown by various attribute types
    • Data reporting covering holdings of securities classified under the following instrument categories, including debt securities, listed shares, investment fund shares, or units

    In accordance with Article 3a(1) of the SHS Regulation, group data reporting agents must, on a quarterly basis, provide the relevant national central banks with security-by-security data on the end-quarter positions of securities. The detailed implementation of the data collection from reporting agents to national central banks—that is, further material such as templates, code lists, and other technical specifications with regard to the primary reporting—is organized at national level under the responsibility of the relevant national central bank. The national central banks are to decide by when they need to receive data from actual reporting agents to be able to perform the necessary quality control procedures and to meet the deadlines for transmission to the SHS database, as laid down in Article 6b of the SHS Regulation.
