The European Banking Authority (EBA) has issued a short statement concerning the supervisory reporting templates contained in the implementing technical standards (ITS) on supervisory reporting which were adopted by the European Commission on 16 April 2014 and are due to be published shortly in the Official Journal of the EU.

The statement declares that whilst the ITS are a correct legal transposition of the relevant provisions in the Capital Requirements Regulation, certain additional technical issues have emerged relating to the mapping of the liquidity templates onto the underlying data point model. To provide a pragmatic solution, the EBA has agreed that either the templates published on the Commission website on 16 April, or the relevant liquidity files published on the EBA website on 2 December 2013, can be used for the purposes of liquidity reporting in accordance with the implementing act. This is an exceptional measure given the specific circumstances of the situation and the urgent need to progress liquidity reporting.
