The CBI has published a number of explanatory documents with respect to the recently released national specific templates (NSTs) to cater for new European Central Bank (ECB) statistical reporting requirements. These NSTs will allow the CBI to gather the additional information it needs (i.e. beyond that contained in Solvency II NSTs) in order to comply with ECB requirements. The documents published include a Q&A explaining the purpose/applicability of the returns, as well as notes to assist undertakings with completion.
