The European Banking Authority has launched a consultation on draft Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) on the reporting of the hypothetical capital of a central counterparty (CCP). These ITS will be part of the Single Rulebook aimed at enhancing regulatory harmonisation in the banking sector in Europe.

This set of draft ITS relates to prudential requirements for banks' exposures to central counterparties and specifies a reporting frequency on a quarterly basis together with a template for the information that a CCP has to deliver to all credit institutions and investment firms that are clearing members, as well as to the supervisory authorities competent for those clearing members.

The consultation runs until 30 September 2013.
