    EC Issues Disclosure Standards and Corrigendum on NSFR Reporting

    April 21, 2021

    EC published Regulation 2021/637 that lays down implementing technical standards for public disclosures of certain information, as referred to in Titles II and III of Part Eight of the Capital Requirements Regulation or CRR (575/2013). Regulation 2021/637 lays down a consistent and complete Pillar 3 disclosure framework to implement the amendments introduced in CRR2 (2019/876). Annexes to this final regulation present disclosure templates and instructions. Regulation 2021/637 shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union and shall apply from June 28, 2021.

    Regulation 2021/637 repeals Regulations 1423/2013, 2015/1555, 2016/200, and 2017/2295, which specify uniform formats, templates, and tables for own funds, the countercyclical capital buffers, the leverage ratio, and asset encumbrance, respectively. The Regulation 2021/637 stipulates that Institutions shall provide information on disclosure reference date and reference period, reporting currency, name, and legal entity identifier (LEI) of the disclosing institution; the accounting standard used; and the scope of consolidation. The implementing standards regulation covers templates for disclosure of metrics related to own funds requirement, countercyclical capital buffers, liquidity requirements, standardized and internal ratings-based approaches to credit risk, specialized lending and equity exposure under the simple risk-weight approach, exposures to securitization positions, operational risk, and the use of the standardized approach and of the internal models for market risk. The regulation also lays down disclosure standards, related templates, and instructions to implement certain other amendments introduced in CRR2, which include:

    • A new calibrated leverage ratio and the leverage ratio buffer for global systemically important institutions
    • The standardized approaches for counterparty credit risk, with a Standardized Approach for Counterparty Credit Risk (SA-CCR) and a Simplified SA-CCR for institutions that meet the predefined eligibility criteria. 
    • Certain disclosure requirements for net stable funding ratio and performing, non-performing, and forborne exposures, including the disclosure of information on collaterals and financial guarantees received
    • Certain remuneration-related disclosure requirements, to ensure that remuneration policies and practices for categories of material risk-takers are consistent with effective risk management

    In addition, EU published, in the Official Journal of the European Union, a corrigendum to Regulation 2021/451 that lays down implementing technical standards for the application of CRR with regard to supervisory reporting of institutions. The corrigendum concerns changes to the reporting template for the net stable funding ratio. Regulation 2021/451 repealed the Implementing Regulation 680/2014 on supervisory reporting.
