Progress in adopting the Principles for effective risk data aggregation and risk reporting.
This is the Basel Committee s' third progress reporton banks' adoption of the Committee's Principles for effective risk data aggregation and risk reporting. Published in 2013, the Principles have the objective of strengthening risk data aggregation and risk reporting at banks to improve their risk management practices and decision-making processes. Firms designated as global systemically important banks (G-SIBs) are required to implement the Principles in full by 2016.
This report reviews banks' progress in 2015. G-SIBs are increasingly aware of the importance of this topic and have moved towards implementing the Principles. Nevertheless, important challenges remain. This report makes additional recommendations to promote adoption of the Principles, including:
Supervisors should conduct more in-depth/specialised examinations on data aggregation requirements to evaluate weaknesses;
Banks should have governance arrangements in place for manual processes; and
Banks' compliance with the Principles should be subject to an independent evaluation in early 2016.
The Principles apply initially to all global systemically important banks. In addition, the Committee recommends that national supervisors apply the Principles to institutions identified as domestic systemically important banks three years after their designation.
