All entities as considered in the regulatory scope of consolidation for any purpose of prudential authorities.

General remarks:
Initiatives that lead to a reduction in the reporting burden for institutions are very welcome.

The common data dictionary, central data collection point and improved exchange of reported data between authorities ("report once") mentioned in the EBA discussion paper can make a significant contribution to this goal. However, the concrete implementation in the regulatory framework based on the final EBA report expected at the end of 2021 remains to be seen.

The inventory of multiple reporting mentioned in several places in the EBA paper should lead to the elimination of these duplicate reporting requirements in a second step in the respective legal acts. The most effective way to reduce the burden on institutions in the area of reporting is to remove reporting requirements for institutions in the Level I texts and in the delegated acts without replacement. Even the Commission, in its fitness check of the EU supervisory reporting system, came to the conclusion that not every single one of the existing reporting obligations should (continue to) be necessary. Any reporting burden must always be balanced by a concrete, measurable and proportionate benefit.

Moreover, we argue for a thorough cost/benefit analysis and where possible one should build on already existing structures, in order to keep costs reasonable. An integrated reporting system must entail a clear benefit for both competent authorities and the industry. It must enhance efficient data sharing between all involved authorities in order to lessen the burden of data submission for banks.
Like in Answer 1 we prefer a comprehensive approach covering the requirements of prudential authorities (EBA, SRB, SSM, ESZB Statistics, BIZ, national central banks und supervisory authorities etc.)
The scope is comprehensive and can be used as a starting point for a discussion with the industry.

For internal purposes we have an internal data dictionary and for external reporting we have to use a predefined data model from the Austrian National Bank. The respective data model from the Austrian National Bank considers also a reporting layer.
The data dictionary should at least consider the input and output parameters incl. transformation logics to ensure data linage.
