Last update 25 July 2013
The Guidelines provide compilers in reporting countries with definitions and requirements for the reporting of data. They facilitate the compilation of national data in a consistent and comparable way. The March 2013 version of the Guidelines incorporates the decisions of the Committee on the Global Financial System to collect new data in two stages over the 2012-14 period. It replaces the previous two separate Guidelines for locational and consolidated banking statistics.

Previous guidelines for reporting the international banking statistics excluding Stage 1 and 2 enhancements:
- Previous reporting requirements for the locational banking statistics (44 pages, 331 kb)
- Previous reporting requirements for the consolidated banking statistics (73 pages, 326 kb)
Codes for the submission of the statistics to the BIS are provided in the data structure definition. Templates in Excel format are also available to help visualise the data structure and, for those central banks that are unable to create SDMX files directly from their system, to report data to the BIS. Central banks using the template to report the locational banking statistics by nationality should contact the BIS to request a customised template; for the other banking statistics, the template below can be used for reporting.

For the locational banking statistics by nationality, a mapping file (XLS, 4,262 kb) is available that shows corresponding codes for different data structures: BIS_M_IBLN (discontinued), BIS_LBP (for reporting data to the BIS), and BIS_LBS_DISS (for dissemination of data by the BIS).
For the consolidated banking statistics a mapping file (XLS, 96 kb) is available that shows corresponding codes for the following different data structures: BIS_M_CIBL (does not incorporate Stage 2 recommendations), BIS_CBS (applicable from the Q4 2013 reporting period).
