On June 23, 2015, the European Banking Authority published its final draft Implementing Technical Standards under the Capital Requirements Regulation, amending the existing ITS on supervisory reporting on the Liquidity Coverage Ratio.

The final draft ITS make significant changes to the existing LCR reporting templates and a large number of new data items need to be introduced further to the requirements of the LCR delegated regulation published in the Official Journal of the European Union in January 2015. The changes include new templates and instructions for banks on capturing and reporting all necessary LCR items. The new templates cover liquid assets, outflows, inflows, collateral swaps and calculation of the LCR. The new instructions will only apply to banks – investment firms will continue to use current instructions and templates, at least for now.
