According to Article 144(d) of Directive 2006/48/EC competent authorities are required to disclose aggregate statistical data on key aspects of the implementation of the prudential framework. The disclosure includes national statistical data on the banking sector, credit risk, operational risk, market risk, as well as data on supervisory actions and measures.
When designing the supervisory disclosures framework, agreement was reached by EBA on the areas of information to be disclosed as well as on the level of detail. In this section, aggregate statistical data on the following topics are disclosed:
No confidential information which competent authorities may receive in the course of their duties may be divulged to any person or authority whatsoever except in summary or collective form, such that individual institutions cannot be identified. Therefore whenever the disclosure of aggregate statistical data would be in breach of confidentiality as determined by the national competent authority, this information shall not be disclosed.
For a list of definitions on the statistical data part of the supervisory disclosure framework, see Annex II of the CEBS Guidelines on Supervisory Disclosure.
For an overview regarding statistical data in the EU Member States see the corresponding tables on the EBA homepage.
