BaFin and Bundesbank issued a statement on proportional application, in Germany, of the EBA guidelines on reporting and disclosures for COVID-19 measures (EBA/GL/2020/07). The EBA guidelines, which were published on June 02, 2020, are aimed to address data gaps in supervisory reporting and disclosures associated with the measures to address the COVID-19 crisis. BaFin mentioned that the first report is expected on the reporting date September 2020 (with a submission deadline until November 11, 2020).
In accordance with the EBA guidelines, the reports are to be submitted by all credit institutions under Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) at both the individual and group level, taking into account the waiver in accordance with Article 7 of CRR. Promotional banks are also required to submit the reports. Institutions are required to report data pursuant to reporting tables F 90.01, F 90.02, F 91.01, F 91.02, and F 91.05. This applies regardless of the level of consolidation or the size of an institution. The reporting frequency is quarterly and the reports must be submitted to Bundesbank as per the reporting deadlines for COREP and FINREP reporting in accordance with the implementing technical standards on supervisory reporting. With regard to disclosures, EBA guidelines have waived the application of disclosure requirements for institutions that are not identified as global or other systemically important institutions. Therefore, for German less significant institutions and promotional banks, there are no disclosure requirements.
