The European Banking Authority (EBA) has launched a supplementary data collection aimed at supporting the response to the European Commission’s Call for Advice on the new prudential framework for investment firms. The exercise follows up on the first data collection launched on 15 July 2016 and the EBA discussion paper published on 4 November 2016, in which the EBA consulted on its proposals for developing a new prudential framework.
The collection of data has been designed in a way that reduces the burden by limiting the number of variables requested to the minimum necessary to accomplish the intended purpose.
The EBA has also published templates and instructions which are addressed to the MiFID investment firms, including those that are expected to fall under the scope of MiFID II.
Firms should submit the completed templates to the relevant national competent authorities by 3 August 2017. The EBA notes that firms that have previously participated in the first data collection are kindly invited to re-submit the new templates, filling in all variables requested even if reported in the previous exercise.
