ECB updated the documentation for banking groups subject to direct reporting of Securities Holdings Statistics Group (SHSG) data. ECB has updated the documents on code list repository and data validation rules. The Securities Holdings Statistics or SHS, which are collected on a security-by-security basis, provide information on securities held by selected categories of euro area investors, broken down by instrument type, issuer country, and further classifications. The SHSG data collection provides information on holdings of securities by individual banking groups.
The specific code lists for the SHSG data collection are defined in the code list repository. The updates in the code list repository include inclusion of codes 4M and 4W as technically allowed codes, inclusion of code 20 for the identification of the slotting approach for specialized lending, among other updates. Also updated are the data validation rules, with the overall three main types of data validation checks being formal validity, internal validity, and external validity. The updates in the data validation rules include changing FINREP amounts to positive values for checks 4 and 5 as well as addition of further expected caveats based on feedback received.
