Banking supervisory reporting

Institutions must submit prudential supervisory reports on a regular basis, depending on the type and scope of their business, so that prudential supervisors can analyse the business performance of the credit and financial services institutions that they supervise.

This section has information on individual reporting requirements as well as the required forms. Under 'Reports' our forms center provides you with all reporting forms (as ZIP files) and further information, arranged by field of expertise. Additionally you can get easy and quick access to individual reporting forms under 'Forms'.
