Deutsche Bundesbank updated Version 10.0 of the AnaCredit validation rules manual, which is expected to be valid from August 01, 2020. Also updated was Version 9.0 of the validation rules manual, which will be valid from February 01, 2020. The manuals on validation rules supplement the guidelines for AnaCredit and the AnaCredit reporting manuals. The manuals describe all validations that are made to ensure satisfactory data quality.
The changes in Version 10.0 of the manual relate to standardization of the terms "reporting obligation" and "Reporting" to "Reporting," according to the guidelines published on the Bundesbank-AnaCredit website. Other key changes include additional clarifications for certain validation rules, adjustment in the definition of international organizations (chapter 4.2), and additions to chapters 2.5 on feedback types, chapter 2.6 on rejection of data, and the descriptions of the individual rules. Changes to Version 9.0 of the manual are based on the adjustment of the reporting requirements and the introduction of the new feedback concept in accordance with Circular No. 39/2019 of June 21, 2019.
AnaCredit regulation (EU Regulation No 2016/867) on the collection of granular credit and credit risk data was approved in May 2016. Analytical Credit Dataset, or AnaCredit, comprises the collection of granular credit data based on harmonized ECB statistical reporting requirements. The objective is to establish a common granular credit database shared between the Eurosystem members, comprising input data for all euro area member states. The AnaCredit data will support the ECB and central banks in performing their central banking and supervisory functions, including monetary policy analysis and operations, risk management, financial stability surveillance, statistics, macro-prudential policy, and research.
