EBA publishes QIS templates to assess the impact of the finalised Basel III standards

7 September 2018

On 6 September 2018, the European Banking Authority (EBA) released two sets of templates, which will be used in the 2018 impact assessment of the finalised Basel III standards. These two sets of quantitative impact study (QIS) templates, which build on the Basel III regular monitoring templates, will ensure that the data collection burden is proportionate to the institutions’ size and complexity.

Following the European Commission’s Call for Advice on the European impact and implementation of the revisions to the Basel III standards agreed by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) in December 2017, the EBA launched, on 13 August 2018, a data collection exercise, which runs in parallel with Q2-2018 EBA-BCBS Basel III regular monitoring exercise.
To ensure that this data collection, which covers a wider sample of institutions, remains proportionate to the size and complexity of each institution, the EBA distributed two different types of QIS templates, which build on and expand the EBA-BCBS Basel III regular monitoring templates.
