PRA published the policy statement PS30/18, which contains the final policy following a consultation (CP16/18) on certain amendments to regulatory reporting. These amendments involve several FSA, PRA, and RFB data items. PS30/18 is relevant to banks, building societies, PRA-designated investment firms, and dormant account fund operators.
The policy statement covers the following changes:
- Final rules in PRA Rulebook related to regulatory reporting (Appendix 1 of PS30/18). These rules will take effect on January 01, 2019.
- The updated supervisory statement SS34/15 on guidelines for completing regulatory reports (Appendix 2 of of PS30/18). PRA101-103 (capital+ forecast) instructions take effect from December 05, 2018, data items and instructions in Appendices 9 and 10 of SS34/15 (RFB001 to RFB008 and PRA109) take effect from January 01, 2019, and PRA110 (cash flow mismatch) instructions take effect from July 01, 2019.
- Updated SS32/15 on Pillar 2 reporting, including instructions for completing data items FSA071 to FSA082 and PRA111 on stress test data (Appendix 3 of PS30/18). SS32/15 takes effect from January 01, 2019.
- Specific changes to the RFB004 template (on intragroup financial reporting: detailed breakdown) have been outlined in Appendix 5 of PS30/18.
These rules and supervisory statements also include updated templates and instructions. To assist the reader, a mapping table has been included in Appendix 4 of PS30/18 and the table outlines templates and instructions contained in SS32/15 and in SS34/15. Appendix 4 also presents the effective dates for the templates and instructions included in the supervisory statements.
PRA received no responses to the consultation on these amendments (CP16/18), which ran from July 2018 to October 2018. However, PRA had identified minor changes to be made in relation to the proposals in the CP16/18. The additional changes have been set out in Chapter 1.6 of PS30/18. PRA has made the changes to the PRA110 reporting instructions, as proposed in CP16/18. However, changes to the reporting level of consolidation in PRA110 rules are subject to the outcome of CP22/18 titled "Liquidity reporting: FSA047 and FSA048."
