Preamble

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms and amending Regulation (EU) No 648/2012, and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 441(2) thereof,

Whereas:

  1. (1)

    In order to help ensure global consistency in disclosure and transparency in the process of identification of global systemically important institutions (G-SIIs), those institutions are required to publicly disclose indicator values used in that process.

  2. (2)

    The disclosure templates used by institutions identified as G-SIIs in accordance with Article 131 of Directive 2013/36/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council should take into account international standards, particularly those issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.

  3. (3)

    In order to ensure consistency and comparability of the collected information, the reporting reference date should be set to coincide with an institution's financial year-end figures of the previous year or any other date agreed with its relevant authority.

  4. (4)

    With a view to facilitating public access to the disclosed information, and seeing that data from all Member States are needed to perform the identification process, the European Banking Authority (EBA) should collect each institution's information and publish it on its website.

  5. (5)

    This Regulation is based on the draft implementing technical standards submitted by the EBA to the Commission.

  6. (6)

    The EBA has conducted open public consultations on the draft implementing technical standards on which this Regulation is based, analysed the potential related costs and benefits and requested the opinion of the Banking Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 37 of Regulation (EU) No 1093/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council,
