EBA issued a revised list of validation rules with respect to the implementing technical standards on supervisory reporting. The update highlights the rules that have been deactivated either for incorrectness or for triggering IT problems. The competent authorities throughout EU are being informed that data submitted in accordance with these implementing technical standards should not be formally validated against the set of deactivated rules.
Validation rules to be disregarded are identified by the presence of a date in the "Deactivated" column in the released Excel worksheet. This indicates the date of the deactivation list in which they were first indicated as deactivated. The updated workbook includes a separate sheet applicable to each reporting requirement, Data Point Model, Taxonomy set release. All validation rules are applicable and equally binding. The worksheet indicates that not meeting "Error" validation rules when submitting data to EBA will cause the file to be rejected; therefore, the submission is not accomplished. Where reporting entities are of the opinion that they can only comply with the reporting requirements set out in the applicable reporting standard if they breach a validation rule of the type "error," they should contact their relevant competent authority (and likely submit a Q&A to the EBA Q&A tool).
