EBA issued a revised list of validation rules under the implementing technical standards on supervisory reporting. The updated Excel workbook includes a separate sheet applicable to each reporting requirement/Data Point Model/Taxonomy set release. The revised list highlights the validation rules that have been deactivated either for incorrectness or for triggering IT problems. Competent authorities throughout the 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.
From time to time, EBA publishes information about validation rules that should be disregarded (primarily due to being identified as potentially incorrect). All validation rules are applicable and equally binding. Not meeting "Error" validation rules when submitting data to EBA will cause the file being submitted to be rejected. 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). Validation rules with the severity status "Warning" are equally binding in the sense that they shall also be considered and closely monitored by reporters. Explanations about failure should be provided to the competent authority where needed—that is. reporters are expected to analyze the results of "Warning" validation rules and verify and revise the data, if necessary. Some warnings may not be applicable to all reporters, in all circumstances, or to all reference dates. As such, not meeting them will not necessarily prevent the successful submission of data. Warnings may become “Error” validation rules in the future. Where feasible and prudent, new validation rules will likely be introduced as warnings initially.
