The EBA has launched a data collection exercise which supports an EU Commission Call for Advice on a new prudential framework for MiFID investment firms in accordance with the requirement of the Capital Requirements Regulation. The EBA has published templates and instructions addressed to MiFID investment firms and to UCITS/AIFMD firms that offer MiFID services, which should be submitted to national competent authorities by 7 October 2016. An ad-hoc data collection for commodity dealers is expected to follow.
