These new templates and instructions will apply only to credit institutions and not to investment firms who will continue reporting the LCR items using the current instructions and templates. The new instructions and templates will apply as of the application date of the ITS, which will be specified when they appear in the OJEU.

EBA issues equivalence recommendation: EBA has published a recommendation setting out its opinion on the confidentiality regime of several non-EU supervisory authorities to help their participation in supervisory colleges overseeing international banks, led by EU supervisors. The non-EU authorities were reviewed on the basis of their treatment of the notion of confidential information, professional secrecy requirements and restrictions on the use and disclosure of confidential information. The recommendation covers the authorities of: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Canada, China, FYR Macedonia, Mexico, Montenegro, Serbia, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey and the US. EBA looked specifically at ensuring that each non-EU authority is subject to a confidentiality regime equivalent to the one provided in the EU by the Capital Requirements Directive (CRD4).
