FINREP - reporting by residence of the counterparty - format of the country code

In which format does the ISO country code (FINREP tables 6, 20.4, 20.5, 20.6, 20.7) need to be reported: Alpha-2 (eg.: BE), Alpha -3 (eg.: BEL) or three-digit numeric (eg.: 056)?

Liquidity: First submission date for Stable Funding template

EBA-ITS-2013-02 Article 18 (7) states: "for the period from 31 March 2014 to 31 December 2014 as a deviation from point (a) of Article 3 (1) the reporting remittance date relating to monthly reporting shall be the 30th calendar day after the reporting reference date". This would mean that the first submission of the LCR template should be by 30 April 2014, but we question whether this should also apply for the first submission of the SFR template? As things stand, it would appear that the first submission of the SFR template should be in line with Article 18 (6).

COREP: Validation rules on draft ITS for C19.00 (MKR SA SEC)

In this return (C 19.00 MKR SA SEC) we are asked to complete the average risk weight (%) for securitisations going through the supervisory formula approach and the internal assessment approach, in columns 260, 290, 490 and 520. The validation rules in Annex XV specify that these % figures are simply added together, as for any other columns on the return. This produces a mathematically nonsensical result. For example, for the total row (row 010) we should add together the average % amounts from each securitisation category, to reach a total average %. The total is thus the sum of the average %s of each row, a figure that owes more to how many rows are being completed than to any particular value. % Would it not be more mathematically sensible to take the average % of the total? In other words, to replace the existing {r010,c260} = {r030,c260} + {r060,c260} + {r090,c260} with {r010,c260} = {{r030,c260} * {r030,c250}} + {{r060,c260} * {r060,c250}} + {{r090,c260} * {r090,c250}} ? Or if this is not suitable, to not calculate the value at all?
