QIS 3 FAQ: M. Scope of Application

1. Banks are asked to complete the worksheets for consolidated group exposures on a worldwide basis. Does this mean that we should not report by country or region?

Answer: Banks may collect the data for their own purposes in any fashion they choose. However, for the final output banks should submit only a single, consolidated set of QIS spreadsheets.

2. How should we report within-group bank exposures in the QIS templates?

Answer: QIS is to be completed on a consolidated basis, consequently exposures between entities within the consolidated group should not be taken into account. If any entities are non-consolidated, exposures to such entities should be treated as ordinary interbank exposures (ceteris paribus the same holds for any other within-group exposures).
