September 27, 2018

ECB published guidance notes to reporting agents on statistics on holdings of securities, or SHS, regulation (EU Regulation No 1011/2012). The document focuses on the SHSG data reporting—that is, the reporting concerning the statistics on holdings of securities by reporting banking groups. It provides guidance and detailed information on the amended SHSG data reporting requirements.

The document contains information on the scope of the SHSG data collection, covers specifications with regard to the instrument categories covered, summarizes general reporting requirements, and provides a detailed description of the attributes included in the reporting with a breakdown by attribute type. In addition to the existing requirements, it covers forthcoming requirements that will start to apply to the reporting of data related to the reference period at the end of September 2018.

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 regarding the primary reporting— is organized at national level under the responsibility of the relevant national central bank. This document explains the underlying methodology of the reporting requirements and provides guidance on the preferred approach that may be taken, in cases where the respective ECB legal act leaves scope for different interpretations. The document aims to provide guidance by clarifying and providing examples related to the requirements and definitions previously laid down in the SHS regulation. It is not a legally binding document, unlike the SHS Regulation, which is the sole legally binding act.
