The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today a discussion paper on the feasibility study of an integrated reporting system to collect feedback for the preparation of its final Report in this area. The discussion paper outlines possible options around the main building blocks of a possible integrated system including a single data dictionary and single reporting system across supervisory, resolution and central bank statistical data. The consultation runs until 11 June 2021.
