On 28 May 2014, the European Central Bank (“ECB”) and the EBA published the third version of the classification system which supports EU banks that are required to report to both the ECB and the EBA. The updated version takes into account the ITS on supervisory reporting (adopted by the European Commission  in April this year and still awaiting publication in the Official Journal of the European Union) under CRD IV and recent ECB regulations on securities holding statistics.

The system is available at: http://www.eba.europa.eu/-/ecb-and-eba-update-the- classification-system-for-their-reporting-frameworks.
