With new obligations coming into force and being applied by the European Banking Authority and the European Central Bank in the area of supervisory reporting, the MFSA and local credit institutions need to keep abreast with and adapt to the changing requirements.

This seminar is aimed at outlining information on newly applicable requirements, developments and initiatives in this area, and the impact of these on institutions. Details on changes to the reporting framework, to the remuneration reporting requirements and to the data collection and validation process will be provided. The MFSA will also be sharing information on its recent assessment on credit institutions’ reporting performance.

Due to its technical detail, this seminar is targeted towards bank officials who work in the area of supervisory reporting within their respective institutions. Officials of branches in Malta of foreign (EU and non-EU) banks working in this area are also invited as some of the information is also relevant to them.
