On March 31, 2016, a Commission Implementing Regulation which amends implementing technical standards on supervisory reporting of institutions as regards the reporting of the leverage ratio, was published in the Official Journal of the European Union. The ITS amends the requirement to report the leverage ratio to regulators under the Capital Requirements Regulation. The amending ITS updates prescribed notional values for institutions and derivatives traded to which certain reporting requirements are attached. The amending ITS provides updated leverage reporting ratio templates and instructions for completing the templates. The amending ITS enters into force on April 20, 2016. The regulation shall apply from the first reporting reference date six months from the date of publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
