DECISION (EU) 2021/432 OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK

of 1 March 2021

amending Decision (EU) 2017/1198 on the reporting of funding plans of credit institutions by national competent authorities to the European Central Bank (ECB/2021/7)

THE GOVERNING COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EU) No 1024/2013 of 15 October 2013 conferring specific tasks on the European Central Bank concerning policies relating to the prudential supervision of credit institutions (1), and in particular Article 6(2) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 468/2014 of the European Central Bank of 16 April 2014 establishing the framework for cooperation within the Single Supervisory Mechanism between the European Central Bank and national competent authorities and with national designated authorities (SSM Framework Regulation) (ECB/2014/17) (2), and in particular Article 21 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal of the Supervisory Board

Whereas:

(1)

Decision (EU) 2017/1198 of the European Central Bank (3) requires national competent authorities to provide the funding plans of certain significant and less significant credit institutions to the European Central Bank (ECB), and establishes harmonised procedures for the submission to the ECB of those funding plans.

(2)

In order to ensure consistent, efficient and effective supervisory practices and to facilitate the reporting of funding plans, Decision (EU) 2017/1198 requires funding plans to be reported in accordance with the harmonised templates and definitions referred to in the funding plan template attached to the European Banking Authority (EBA) Guidelines on harmonised definitions and templates for funding plans of credit institutions under Recommendation A4 of ESRB/2012/2 (EBA/GL/2014/04) (4).

(3)

The EBA Guidelines on harmonised definitions and templates for funding plans of credit institutions under Recommendation A4 of ESRB/2012/2 (EBA/GL/2014/04) are repealed and replaced with effect from 31 December 2020 by the EBA Guidelines on harmonised definitions and templates for funding plans of credit institutions under Recommendation of the European Systemic Risk Board of 20 December 2012 (ESRB/2012/2) (5) (hereinafter the ‘EBA 2019 Guidelines’).

(4)

For the exclusive purpose of carrying out the tasks conferred on it by Articles 4(1) and (2) and 5(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1024/2013, the ECB is considered, as appropriate, the competent authority or the designated authority in the participating Member States as established by Union law. Therefore, the ECB is amongst the addressees of the EBA 2019 Guidelines.

(5)

The EBA Decision concerning supervisory reporting by competent authorities to the EBA (EBA/DC/2020/334) (6), repealing the EBA Decision of 23 September 2015 (EBA/DC/2015/130), requires competent authorities to submit data on funding plans of all credit institutions under their supervisory remit in accordance with the EBA 2019 Guidelines. In addition, that EBA Decision classifies all credit institutions as either ‘Largest institutions in the Member State’ or ‘Smaller Institutions’ for the purposes of determining the submission dates of the requested data from competent authorities to the EBA. It is appropriate that the ECB takes account of those classifications.

(6)

In order to align reporting to the ECB by national competent authorities of funding plans of credit institutions with the most recent harmonised definitions and templates in the EBA 2019 Guidelines, and to ensure compliance with the EBA Decision EBA/DC/2020/334, Decision (EU) 2017/1198 should be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
