EBF has responded to the European Banking Authority's consultation on implementing technical standards on supervisory reporting requirements for the leverage ratio. As it did when commenting on liquidity coverage and stable funding, EBF asks that the application of new requirements be postponed until 1 January 2014. It also warns about having to report similar data in different templates and the reconciliation efforts stemming from this. A review of reporting requirements should remove duplicative templates and offer a single definition for each data item. EBF also proposes several measures for further easing the reporting burden.
