DNB decided to leave the countercyclical capital buffer (CCyB) for banks to be unchanged at 0% for this quarter. Although DNB intends to build up CCyB eventually, the activation of CCyB is not expected before the end of 2021. DNB also published its first report on financial climate-related risks and opportunities in accordance with the recommendations from Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). The report discloses the steps taken to identify and mitigate climate-related risks in DNB's areas of responsibility, including asset and liability management, supervision of the financial sector, economic advice, and statistics. In addition to this, DNB published several reporting updates, along with a list of additional data requests for banks. The updated data requests, which have been highlighted with the word "UPDATE" in red, include semi-recurring as well as ad hoc data requests to banks from DNB and European agencies.
The key reporting updates include the following:
- One of the additional data requests requires less significant institutions to submit an updated recovery plan by March 31, 2021, in accordance with the revised Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) as transposed into Dutch law.
