On March 10, 2016, Commission Implementing Regulation was published in the Official Journal of the European Union, which amends the Implementing Technical Standards on supervisory reporting by providing for significant changes to the existing Liquidity Coverage Ratio reporting requirements under the Capital Requirements Regulation. The amending ITS introduce the templates and a large number of new data items necessary following the LCR requirements being implemented for credit institutions in January 2015. The European Banking Authority published its final draft amending ITS in June 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.

The amended ITS on supervisory reporting will apply from September 10, 2016. The amending ITS is available at: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legalcontent/EN/TXT/?uri=uriserv:OJ.L_.2016.064.01.0001.01.ENG&toc=OJ:L:2016:064:TOC
