EBA publishes revised list of incorrect ITS validation rules

19 May 2014

The European Banking Authority (EBA) issued a revised list of incorrect validation rules found in its Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) on supervisory reporting. The Authority informed that data submitted in accordance with these ITS should not be validated against the previously published set of incorrect rules.

Some initial tests based on real data from reporting firms, as well as some answers to questions submitted via the EBA Q&A tool, showed that several validation rules in the EBA's ITS on supervisory reporting were incorrect or could trigger problems with some IT tools. As more real data will become available in the near future, the list of incorrect validation rules is expected to increase. Updated versions will be published on the EBA website as soon as available.

The full list of updated validation rules can be found on the EBA website under "Related documents" in the Supervisory Reporting section
