The C 05.01 template seems not compliant with CRR2

The 494b of CRR2 relates to Grandfathering of own funds instruments and eligible liabilities instruments and indicates that : " 1. By way of derogation from Articles 51 and 52, instruments issued prior to 27 June 2019 shall qualify as Additional Tier 1 instruments at the latest until 28 June 2025, where they meet the conditions set out in Articles 51 and 52, except for the conditions referred to in points (p), (q) and (r) of Article 52(1). 2. By way of derogation from Articles 62 and 63, instruments issued prior to 27 June 2019 shall qualify as Tier 2 instruments at the latest until 28 June 2025, where they meet the conditions set out in Articles 62 and 63, except for the conditions referred to in points (n), (o) and (p) of Article 63." We have to classify some instruments in Grandfathered instruments but without applying the same percentage than CRR1, but the C 05.01 template is not appropriate because it is not updated. How do we have to fill this template to be consistent with the C01.00 template?

Col 040 of Corep: C 32.04 - Prudent Valuation: Concentrated Positions AVA (PRUVAL 4) report

As per article 14 (details available below), col 040 of Corep C32.04 report is quite subjective. But to the best of our interpretation can we say that its a percentage value and is computed as Col 040 = ( CONCENTRATED POSITIONS AVA (Col 080) / Total CONCENTRATED POSITIONS AVA )* 100

Obstacle to the provision of payment initiation and account information services

Should Article 32.3 of Regulation (EU) 2018/389, read together with paragraphs 33 to 41 of the Opinion of the European Banking Authority on obstacles under Article 32(3) of the RTS on SCA and CSC, be interpreted so as to consider that interface implementations that require, in a redirection approach, Payment Initiation Services Providers (PISPs) to always transmit the payer’s IBAN to initiate a payment order, are an obstacle to the provision of payment initiation services because the payment service user is required to manually enter their IBAN while in the PISP’s domain? Should Article 32.3 of Regulation (EU) 2018/389 be interpreted identically where the interface implementations require Account Information Service Providers (AISPs) to always transmit the IBAN(s) of the account(s) to be accessed, therefore requiring the payment service user to manually enter their IBAN(s) while in the AISP’s domain?

On the requirements for 'inherence' in strong customer authentication (SCA)

Do the elements required for ‘inherence’ in strong customer authentication (SCA) provide the complete authentication or can they form a part of an authentication decision with some non-biometric elements and still satisfy the inherence condition, for example, as one element of a user profile of several elements. For example, if the biometric, say keystroke dynamics, provides 50% of the decision and other characteristics (e.g. device data, location data) provide the other 50%, does this satisfy the requirement for inherence assuming the condition for 'very low probability of unauthorised access' is also satisfied and that another SCA condition, 'knowledge' or 'possession' is also satisfied? if so, is there a threshold, say 50%, below which it ceases to qualify as 'inherence'?
