Supervision release 30 June 2020 – 43/2020

Amendments to the Guidelines on the reporting of funding plans to enter into force on 31 December 2020

The FIN-FSA’s regulations and guidelines 6/2014 on the reporting of funding plans have been amended with effect from 31 December 2020, to incorporate the updated Guidelines of the European Banking Authority (EBA) on harmonised definitions and templates for funding plans of credit institutions (EBA/GL/2019/05).

The regulations and guidelines apply to credit institutions which are identified as significant institutions in accordance with the criteria provided in the Regulation on the Single Supervisory Mechanism1 (SSM Regulation) and the SSM Framework Regulation2 and which hence fall within the scope of direct supervision by the European Central Bank (ECB). This scope of application fulfils the recommendation3 of the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB) that the data collection be applied to credit institutions covering at least 75% of the banking system’s total consolidated assets.

In the updated Guidelines issued by the EBA, the definitions and breakdowns have been aligned with those used in FINREP reporting. The Guidelines introduce a more detailed breakdown of market-based funding according to seniority, and some simplifications for small and non-complex institutions to enhance proportionality.   

According to the updated guidelines, the first reporting reference date is 31 December 2020, with the deadline for submitting the reports set for 15 March 2021.
