On 6 October 2021, the Dutch Central Bank (De Nederlandsche Bank, DNB) published a news item on its website drawing attention to the fact that from 1 October 2021 regulatory reporting for investment firms, fund managers and investment holdings had changed in a number of important areas.

The changes were due to the entry into force of the Investment Firm Regulation (IFR) and the Investment Firm Directive (IFD) on 30 September 2021. The aforementioned firms now need to make use of the new taxonomy and input templates made available by DNB. DNB notes that for fund managers their new reporting profile will be visible in DNB’s Digital Reporting Portal (DLR) after 1 January 2022.

DNB is requesting investment firms as well as fund managers that also provide investment services to check the reporting profile assigned to them in the DLR shortly after 1 October 2021. Fund managers who do not also provide investment services should do so after 1 January 2022. The reporting profiles can be checked through the following website. Investment firms and fund managers also providing investment services are also required to make use of the reporting templates as drawn up by the European Banking Authority. In this regard investment firms and fund managers should also check their reporting profiles in the DLR shortly after 1 October 2021 (using this website).

If a reporting profile is not (entirely) correct, the firm should contact DNB via beleggingsonderneming.rap@dnb.nl.
