Revision of reports scheduled from the reference month of January 2022 onwards Revision of reports for banks’ (MFIs’) monthly balance sheet statistics and the external position of banks (MFIs) (scheduled from the reference month of January 2022 onwards)

On 22 January 2021, the ECB Governing Council adopted the Regulation on the balance sheet items of credit institutions and of the monetary financial institutions sector (ECB/2021/2). This recast version of the Regulation concerning the balance sheet of the monetary financial institutions sector (ECB/2013/33) was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 3 March 2021.

The amendment made to the Regulation means that the reporting requirements applying to the Bundesbank’s banking statistics surveys have to be adapted. We are currently compiling an accompanying Bundesbank ordinance, as well as a set of revised reporting templates for banks’ (MFIs’) balance sheet statistics and the external position of banks (MFIs), to be used for submissions as of the reference month of January 2022.

The Bundesbank will post timely information on the intermediate phases of the German implementation process on this page and keep it updated.
