    FIN-FSA Maintains CCyB at 0%, Launches Reporting System Reform

    September 30, 2020

    FIN-FSA decided to maintain the countercyclical capital buffer (CCyB) requirement for credit institutions at 0% and the maximum loan-to-collateral ratio at the statutory standard level of 90% for residential mortgage loans other than first-home loans. The FIN-FSA Board also decided not to extend validity of the risk-weight floor requirement for housing loans, which expires on January 01, 2021. The minimum risk-weight level of 15% was set in June 2017. However, at present, average risk-weights on residential mortgage loans of Finnish banks exceed the 15% limit, which is why it was decided not to extend the validity of the risk-weight floor. According to another announcement, FIN-FSA launched a reform of the reporting system for the financial standing and risks of supervised entities. The tendering phase for the reporting system is underway, with the system supplier expected to be selected during Spring 2021.

    The reporting system reform will cover data collections for EBA, EIOPA, ESMA, and national (Virati) requirements. The data collections will be transferred gradually to the new reporting system during 2022–2023. A more detailed schedule will be known after the system vendor has been selected. In the new reporting system, reporters will have access to a "reporter portal," in which Finnish and foreign reporters will be authenticated and authorized via the suomi.fi service. The reporting obligations for each reporter will be visible in the "reporter portal." It will also be possible to submit reports to the FIN-FSA via an interface (A2A) provided for the reporter. Reporting feedback on a submitted report will be provided via both the "reporter portal" and the interface (A2A). In the new Reporting System, national reporting will continue to be in CSV format. In a separate statement on the use of testing environment for reporting, FIN-FSA notified that reporters may submit their reports to the testing environment, provided by FIN-FSA, for checking before submitting the official report to the FIN-FSA. It is possible for reporters to receive automatic feedback from the testing environment on format errors present in reports and on reporting that violates EBA and EIOPA filing rules. It is also possible to receive feedback from the testing environment about incorrect validations.
