Joint Workshop by the Bank of England, European Central Bank, and the OFR, "Setting Global Standards for Granular Data"

A key aspect of international regulatory reform has been enhancing the breadth, depth, quality, and timeliness of data disclosed by financial firms to central banks and supervisory authorities.

As recently highlighted by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, this shortcoming impaired the ability of central banks and supervisory authorities to identify appropriate recovery-and-resolution mechanisms for firms.
