As referred to in Article 21(4)(e) of Regulation (EC) No 1060/2009, credit rating agencies shall report data on all credit ratings and rating outlooks issued or endorsed, or issued in a third country and not endorsed as referred to in Article 1(5), including information on all entities or debt instruments submitted for their initial review or for preliminary rating, as referred to in point 6 of Part I of Section D of Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 1060/2009.
For those credit ratings and rating outlooks to which Article 8 does not apply, credit rating agencies shall report rating data relating to the preceding calendar month on a monthly basis.
A credit rating agency that has fewer than 50 employees and that is not part of a group of credit rating agencies may provide the rating data referred to in paragraph 2 every two months, unless the FCA requires monthly reporting in view of the nature, complexity and range of issues of its credit ratings. That rating data shall refer to the preceding two calendar months.
The rating data referred to in paragraph 2 shall be submitted to the FCA within 15 days from the end of the period that is covered by the report. Where the 15th day of the month falls on a public holiday in the country of domicile of the credit rating agency, or where a credit rating agency reports on behalf of a group in accordance with Article 1(4), the country of domicile of that credit rating agency, the deadline shall be the next working day.
Where no credit ratings or rating outlooks referred to in paragraph 1 were issued during the preceding calendar month, the credit rating agency shall not be obliged to submit any data.
