MFSA updated multiple templates as part of the common reporting (COREP) and financial reporting (FINREP) frameworks, in line with the implementing technical standards (Regulation 680/2014) on supervisory reporting that are covered under the Capital Requirements Regulation or CRR (EU Regulation 575/2013). The updated templates are under the EBA framework version 2.9. MFSA also updated the lists of currencies and country codes, along with the EBA validation rules. The guidelines for credit institutions and branches to upload and review supervisory reporting data through LH Portal have also been updated.
Credit institutions are required to submit COREP and FINREP data on both individual and consolidated basis, where applicable. For credit institutions, the updated templates under COREP are related to own funds and own funds requirements (immovable property losses), leverage, large exposures and concentration risk, and liquidity template modules (including LCR DA, NSFR, and AMM for additional liquidity monitoring metrics). For foreign branches, the COREP template for immovable property losses (module OF) under the own funds requirements has been updated. The updated FINREP templates include those on non-performing loans (NPLs) and forbearance for both credit institutions and foreign branches. Submission of data by credit institutions to MFSA shall be in line with the reporting dates available in the remittance timetable.
