Submitting international banking statistics to the BIS

Reporting authorities are encouraged to submit the international banking statistics to the BIS using the SDMX standard. The technical guidelines below provide practical information on how to submit data to the BIS.

Codes for submitting the banking statistics are provided in the data structure definitions. In addition, Excel templates are available as a visual aid for data structure, and to assist reporting authorities who are unable to create SDMX files directly from their system in reporting data to the BIS. Summaries of checks - performed by the BIS to confirm the consistency of reported data - are also provided. Reporting authorities are encouraged to implement these checks in their own systems.

The mapping files above show corresponding codes for different data structures:

  • Locational banking statistics by residence: BIS_M_IBLR (discontinued) is mapped to BIS_LBP (for reporting data to the BIS) and BIS_LBS_DISS (for dissemination of data by the BIS). 
  • Locational banking statistics by nationality: BIS_M_IBLN (discontinued) is mapped to BIS_LBP (for reporting data to the BIS) and BIS_LBS_DISS (for dissemination of data by the BIS).
  • Consolidated banking statistics: BIS_M_CIBL (discontinued) is mapped to BIS_CBS (which incorporates Stage 2 enhancements).
