Information obligations of banks and branches of foreign banks
A regulated entity is obliged to start fulfilling its reporting obligations after obtaining a banking licence (in the case of banks and branches of banks from third countries) or after completing passporting (in the case of branches of foreign banks from the EU) and after registration in the Commercial Register.
Where a licence has been granted or passporting completed and the entity is not ready to commence actual operations, a deferral of reporting obligations may be requested through the contacts listed for each reporting area.
The collection of statistical, supervisory and resolution data for the needs of the Czech National Bank and other data users is primarily performed by the SDAT system.
For data acquisition and reporting, the SDAT production environment is used for routine operation, while the test environment is used for testing purposes (link, in Czech only).
Documents for reporting using the SDAT system are available on the CNB website, in the section SDAT technical specification (in Czech only). Any changes will be announced in the News section on the main SDAT page of the CNB website (in Czech only).

Reporting obligation and methodology
CNB AnaCredit data reporting is primarily based on ECB AnaCredit and consists of monthly/quarterly reporting of defined statements PANACR02 - PANACR23. Collection is carried out using the CNB SDAT collection system. However, there are significant differences between CNB and ECB AnaCredit - CNB AnaCredit is a superset of ECB AnaCredit. The main differences are:
- national attributes (attributes with $ in AnaCredit scheme) and national statements (PANACR21 - Contract linkage, PANACR22 - Credit risk, PANACR23 - Economically related group)
- CNB AnaCredit also collects purely off-balance sheet instruments (more details in AnaCredit national specifics, in Czech only)
Attributes identical to ECB attributes are reported under ECB methodology, i.e. using the AnaCredit manual parts I, II, III.
Receivables for legal persons (LP) and natural persons engaged in business (NPEB) are reported to AnaCredit. If a bank (or branch of a foreign bank) does not record any receivables to be reported to AnaCredit, they must report blank statements PANACR02 to PANACR23 in the SDAT system on a monthly basis (for each reference period).
All necessary information, documents and contacts are available on the CNB website, in the section Reporting to AnaCredit.
The correctness of AnaCredit data is tested in four steps, and all four levels of checks must be completed to successfully close the reporting in a given month:
- format checks - implemented in SDAT
- single-statement checks (SSC) - implemented in SDAT
- inter-statement checks (ISC) - implemented in SDAT
- plausibility checks (DQI or comparison with RISIFE and FINREP) and comparison with the Central Credit Register - implemented outside SDAT (communication via e-mail and/or the Central Credit Register DM system)
Completion of the first three steps of the SDAT checks is formally referred to as compliance with the reporting obligation and is required within 30 days following the reference date of the relevant statements. The completion of the last, fourth step is confirmed by an confirmation e-mail from the Business Administration of AnaCredit and is required within 45 days following the reference date of the relevant statements. Information on the SSC and ISC checks can be found in the document SDAT checks. Information on DQI checks and comparisons with the Central Credit Register can be found in the aforementioned document National Specifics of Reporting to AnaCredit.
Each newly established reporting entity should send to the Business Administration of AnaCredit (firstname.lastname@example.org ) the contact details of the person(s) who:
- will be responsible for AnaCredit data reporting for your bank branch
- will receive the results of the plausibility checks and comparisons with the Central
- will receive from us documents on the results of the plausibility checks and comparisons with the Central Credit Register by means of encrypted communication (it is necessary to have a commercial encryption certificate issued by a PostSignum, I.CA or eIdentity authority) or the Central Credit Register DM system
AnaCredit credit data reporting is also related to the separate RIAD system, which contains information on counterparties appearing in credit data (debtor, creditor...). For the purposes of AnaCredit data reporting, it is necessary to use the counterparty identifiers registered in the RIAD system.
This is a centralized multi-purpose register of economic entities operating not only in the Czech Republic but also abroad, with the rule that each economic entity exists in this register exactly once and is identified by just one unique identifier (the so-called RIAD IDK). Using the RIAD IDK, the counterparty is then identified within the AnaCredit project.
To access the CNB RIAD, a commercial certificate from one of the three supported certification authorities (PostSignum, 1CA, eIdentity) is required - a representative of the reporting bank sends a request for the creation of a so-called superuser (user account manager) with an attached certificate in PEM form by e-mail to RIAD-VS@cnb.cz. They then gain access to the CNB RIAD web application and web services.
The web application provides access to registry data through a simple, user-friendly search form, allows the sending of input messages in XML format, user-account management, and access to code lists. For automation, there are web services based on a simple API allowing the sending and receiving of XML requests and responses.
Before creating a new entity, the reporting person first verifies whether the entity is not already in the register (web form or XML-Query input message), then uploads new data to existing entities in the form of an update (XML report - update), creates non-existing entities (XML report - creation) and the so-called identification process takes place. For Czech counterparties, the ROS register of persons (one of the basic Czech registers - see https://www.szrcr.cz/cs/registr-osob, in Czech only). For foreign counterparties, the ECB RIAD system (to which the CNB RIAD is linked) is used in a similar way, and selected data are synchronised with the ECB RIAD.
All documentation, including manuals, technical specifications, auxiliary tools, links and code lists can be found at https://www.cnb.cz/cs/statistika/anacredit/RIAD/ (in Czech only).
Please direct e-mail communications, questions and requests related to AnaCredit to AnaCredit@cnb.cz or, where related to RIAD, to RIAD-VS@cnb.cz
A Central Credit Register participant has, on the basis of Decree No 164/2002 Coll. on the conditions of access to information in the CNB database Central Credit Register, access to information stored in the register database via the Central Credit Register application (in on-line mode) or by using direct communication between the bank application server and the Central Credit Register system via web services sessions (called CRUWS).
Reporting obligation and methodology
A Central Credit Register participant is obliged to send the required data to the Central Credit Register database (outside the SDAT system) on a monthly basis. Summary information on the technical connection and access management, conditions of participation in the Central Credit Register and reporting methodology is not public and will be sent to the bank upon request, please contact email@example.com . Please note that all CCR methodology documents and applications are in Czech only.
The Czech National Bank participates in the financing of the Central Credit Register together with the other Central Credit Register participants (banks). Fees for access to Central Credit Register information are charged to Central Credit Register participants in accordance with the aforementioned CNB Decree No 164/2002 Coll. The amount of the fees and the conditions for charging them are set out in the CNB Schedule of Charges for Financial and Business Services (in Czech only).
More information on the Central Credit Register in general (content, functions, purpose of the Register, etc.) is available under the Central Credit Register tab on the CNB website.
The new Central Credit Register (CCR2) is currently under development at the CNB. Its underlying data layer will consist of AnaCredit/RIAD data. Switching the CCR over to AnaCredit data will save banks the cost of the current duplicate credit data reporting to AnaCredit and the CCR. The CCR2 system will enable banks to access data using web services and also through a user interface (a web app).
If you want to know more about the project, check out the CCR2 Project tab on the CNB website.
Reporting obligation and methodology
The collection of UVIS data - survey of consumer loans secured by residential property - is carried out at three-month intervals on the last day of February, May, August and November. The deadline for data submission is 30 calendar days following the reference date.
All banks and branches of foreign banks have a reporting obligation. If the reporting entity (bank, branch) did not provide any consumer loans secured by residential property in the reporting period, it submits a blank statement to the CNB.
The data collected are granular and aggregated data on newly granted, increased and refinanced consumer loans secured by residential property in the reference period of the preceding three months. The statement also contains granular data on consumer loans secured by residential property that are in default as of the last day of the reference period.
The structure of the statement and its individual data fields is available in the SDAT system under Methodological information - Statements - Banking reporting framework. More information on the methodology for collecting UVIS data with the UVIS01 statement in METVBxx reporting is also available in the methodological documents available in the Methodological Guide to the UVIS Statement on the CNB website.
Please direct e-mail communication and questions to UVIS@cnb.cz.
