    EBA Sets Out Long-Term Vision for Streamlining Reporting Processes

    December 16, 2021

    The European Banking Authority (EBA) published the final report on the feasibility study of an integrated reporting system in the European Union. This report is the outcome of over two years of effort and active engagement of both national and European authorities as well as the interaction with financial institutions, professional associations and specialized service providers. This study is part of a broader strategy of the European Commission to improve and modernize EU supervisory reporting while minimizing the aggregate reporting burden for all parties. The report puts forward a long-term vision on how the reporting processes could be streamlined and improved for both institutions and competent authorities and how cooperation among the competent authorities could be enhanced in the area of prudential, resolution, and supervisory reporting.

    The report identifies the feasible immediate next steps to move toward integration and the areas that require further investigation. EBA concludes that there is wide agreement that a common data dictionary for prudential, statistical, and resolution data collection is a key building block of an integrated reporting system. The feasibility study covers potential approaches and challenges that need to be overcome to reach the desired integration. There is support to further explore the possibility to increase the level of granularity for the reporting requirements, where feasible, in the context of an integrated reporting system, as a way to further increase the efficiency of the reporting process. The creation of a Central Data Collection Point (CDCP) is considered potentially useful by both authorities and institutions. While a common data dictionary can significantly foster integration, the CDCP will potentiate the sharing of processes that will leverage the benefits of the common data dictionary. Both authorities and industry also agree that any integration and centralization efforts require coordination among the different parties involved to achieve a common vision. The report outlines a proposal for the governance structure (Joint Reporting Committee or JRC) and its membership. This structure is envisaged to ensure participation of all authorities and to also have an efficient operational model. 

    Development of an integrated reporting system will require significant investments and increased resources by authorities, but also major investments by institutions. However, in the long term, increased efficiency in the reporting process may result in benefits for both authorities and institutions, outweighing these investment costs, considering a carefully planned and executed implementation and development of an integrated reporting system. Developing the common data dictionary by defining business glossaries and common data models, drawing best practices for data integration, and providing an estimate of the resources needed to achieve the integration objectives are a few of the short-term action points that could serve as a basis for building a more detailed roadmap for the Joint Reporting Committee. Developing a more integrated system should be done mindful of the progress already achieved in the area of integration so far. In the report, EBA notes that any change should be implemented gradually so as not to disrupt the current processes and should foster the principle of proportionality. EBA is committed to further contributing to the building of a common vision of integrated reporting across prudential, resolution, and statistical reporting in cooperation with the relevant stakeholders, to leverage on the work already done and on the lessons learned from the different European and national initiatives. The feasibility study is part of the EBA contribution to the European Union supervisory data strategy aiming to improve efficiency of reporting across financial sectors.
