PRA formally announce the delay of Additional Monitoring Metrics (AMM) Reporting

The PRA have recently weighed in on the AMM delay saga, which have included the EBA’s announcement to delay AMM up to three months and the European Commission’s intention to delay AMM until January 2016.

The PRA confirmed the European Commission’s decision to delay AMM until January 2016, replacing the original 1st of July deadline and the European Commission’s intention to remove the ‘maturity ladder’ template from the ITS.
The PRA state they will provide an update once the EBA send its opinion or a revised ITS and firms will NOT be required to report any of the data in the additional monitoring metrics for liquidity until the first reporting and submission dates following the amended application date.

Implementing the Senior Managers Regime – whose responsibility is it?

Meeting the requirements of the Senior Managers Regime is a significant logistical undertaking with input required from multiple sources. However the obvious question is which function should take overall leadership for this initiative.

In three successive compliance webinars we posed this question to delegates. The webinars were held both before and after the publication of the FCA/PRA consultation papers the most recent of which confirmed the implementation date of 7th of March 2016.

This blog analyses the results and whether there is any early indication which department will be assuming overall responsibility for this important new regulatory requirement.

EBA release new (2.3) Data Point Model and XBRL taxonomy for Additional Monitoring Metrics (AMM)

EBA release new (2.3) Data Point Model and XBRL taxonomy for Additional Monitoring Metrics (AMM)

On 2nd March 2015 the European Banking Authority (EBA) published a new XBRL taxonomy to be used by competent authorities for remittance of data under the EBA Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) on supervisory reporting.

The new taxonomy will have as reference date 30th June 2015 onwards and will be used for the first reports on Additional Monitoring Metrics (AMM) and supervisory benchmarking.

This data point model contains the XBRL sub-methodology firms and technology vendors require to form the XBRL taxonomy ready for submission later this year.

Although AMM hasn’t been released in the European Union Official Journal and is yet to be adopted by the European Commission, with the release of the DPM 2.3 it is unlikely AMM templates will change significantly, if at all during this time.

“So, we are still waiting for the final ‘FINAL’ draft of the AMM ITS, HOWEVER, AMM first reporting date, 1st July 2015, is very unlikely be delayed.”

Senior Managers and Certification Regimes timeline (FCA update)

Given the current state of play regarding the need for the Bank of England to authorise a change in legislation to enable the PRA and FCA to implement the Regimes and the fact that the second Consultation Paper is still in consultation, ending 27th February, and allowing the regulators time to respond to the CP feedback, it is reasonable to assume that the PRA and FCA will not be in a position to issue final Policy Statements, guidance, etc., until …
