On 11 March 2021, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published a discussion paper on the feasibility study of an integrated reporting system to collect feedback for the preparation of its final report in this area. The discussion paper outlines possible options around the main building blocks of a possible integrated system including a single data dictionary and single reporting system across supervisory, resolution and central bank statistical data. The consultation runs until 11 June 2021.

Article 430c of the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) mandates the EBA to prepare a feasibility study for the development of a consistent and integrated system for collecting statistical, resolution and prudential data, as well as to involve the relevant authorities in the preparation of the study.  The overall objective of the feasibility study is to identify the feasibility of various ways to streamline the reporting process and increase efficiencies going forward. The report should be neutral in regard to both the options and to the institutional set up and simply identify the various options and the feasibility thereof. It is important that the report does not draw conclusions or make proposals.
