The European Banking Authority (EBA) has published revised final draft technical standards and guidelines on the further specifications of the indicators of global systemic importance and their disclosure. The revision was prompted by the new data template and some minor changes introduced by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision in January 2015 for the identification of global systemically important banks.

The revised guidelines stipulate that not only global systemically important institutions (G-SIIs), but also other large institutions with an overall exposure of more than EUR 200 billion and which are potentially systemically relevant, will be subject to the same disclosure requirements as the G-SIIs. The EBA will act as a central data hub in this disclosure process, thus providing a platform to aggregate data across the whole EU.
