Summary of the information to be submitted to the CSSF

In order to provide an overview of the investment firms’ periodical reporting requirements (national and harmonised reporting requirements) to the CSSF, the CSSF has published the following documents:

  • “Reporting requirements for investment firms”
  • “ITS on Supervisory Reporting – Reporting requirements for investment firms on an individual and consolidated basis”

The aforementioned documents are directly available through links in the “Documentation” section hereafter.

Common European reporting

Banks and the so-called CRR Investments firms share similarities as they are both subject to the Capital Requirement Directive and Capital Requirement Regulation. These institutions are producing all or a part of EBA ITS reporting modules under XBRL format according to the applicable taxonomy. In this regard, CRR investment firms are invited to consult the “Reporting Handbook (called “Reporting requirements for credit institutions”)”

  • “Tables, Instructions, DPM and validation rules”

The aforementioned documents are directly available through a link in the “Documentation” section hereafter.

EBA Validation rules and additional CSSF and ECB plausibility checks

CRR investment firms are, as banks, also concerned by validation rules laid down in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 680/2014. The CSSF has published an Excel file (named “Status of problematic EBA Validation Rules”) containing a list of EBA “problematic” validation rules that have been subject to questioning either by reporting entities or by the CSSF itself. The CSSF also shares a complementary Word document explaining inter alia the different severity status.

In addition to the validation rules laid down in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 680/2014, the CSSF and the ECB carry out plausibility checks. The CSSF published a document (called “CSSF and ECB – Plausibility checks – Final version”) presenting these additional checks.

CSSF plausibility checks are applicable to both credit institutions and CRR investment firms as long as they are subject to the reporting of the modules on which the check is applied. The ECB EGDQ Checks are also applicable to both credit institutions and CRR investments firms as long as their reporting modules are transmitted to the ECB. For those institutions that are not subject to ECB reporting transmission, those EGDQ checks should be considered as best practices.

The aforementioned documents are directly available through links in the “Documentation” section hereafter.
