The aim is to implement the Pillar 3 data hub requested by the level 1 legislation, finalize improved data point model and methodology implementing the DPM ReFit to ensure the EBA data dictionary is fit for future challenges of reporting and digital processing, and complete the first phase of Digital Regulatory Reporting (DRR) tools to support the continuous reporting framework development process, including the DPM releases, the full validation rules lifecycle, the support of data calculations, and the creation of XBRL taxonomy packages.
