On March 31, 2015, the Regulation of the European Central Bank on reporting of supervisory financial information was published in the Official Journal of the European Union. The Regulation sets out the requirements for significant and less significant banks to report supervisory financial information to their relevant national regulator. The Regulation applies to all banks that fall under the Single Supervisory Mechanism as well as any branches of banks established outside of the SSM where the branch operates in a Eurozone Member State or another Member State that has opted into the SSM. The aim of the Regulation is to ensure that both significant and less significant firms report a common minimum set of information to national regulators, which will then be passed to the ECB. The Regulation came into effect on April 1, 2015.
