What is Granular Data Reporting?

Granular data reporting is becoming increasingly important to regulators all over the world. Regulators are striving for greater transparency and enhanced data governance.

Requirements globally include the European’s AnaCredit requirement, Hong Kong Monetary Authority’s (HKMA) Granular Data Repository (GDR), Australian Prudential Regulation Authority’s (APRA) Comprehensive Data Collection roadmap (CDC), and the Bank of Thailand’s (BOT) Regulatory Data Transformation (RDT).

Global expertise

Wolters Kluwer is the leader in Regulatory Reporting globally, and has 100+ clients. Our OneSumx GDR solution serves all regions and meets granular data reporting guidelines relating to ECB, HKMA, APRA, and BOT.

ECB - AnaCredit

We’ve had 100+ GDR projects in EMEA for the European Central Bank’s AnaCredit regulation in 2018 on Granular Data Reporting for Credit Risk Data.


Hong Kong (HKMA) launched the Granular Reporting Pilot Program in 2019 which was finalized in 2020 and launched its second phase in 2021. Our mature global platform incorporates HKMA specific requirements, alongside our Regulatory Update Service.


Various granular data reporting initiatives have been rolled out across China by all regulators since 2019. Our solution supports financial institutions looking to navigate these guidelines and the number of initiatives are expected to grow significantly over the next 3-5 years.


APRA (Australia) launched its granular reporting program ARS 220 around Credit Risk in late 2020. A five-year roadmap has since been released regarding their Comprehensive Data Collection (CDC) and our OneSumX GDR solution supports these new requirements.


Bank of Thailand (BOT) has announced the Regulatory Data Transformation, a journey of granular data reporting, backed by APIs with a submission deadline of 2023. As a market leader in GDR, we can enable banks to start implementations during the consulting stage of the regulation, giving banks a head-start.

BECRIS 2.0 - Belgium

Beginning January 2024, the Belgian National Bank (NBB) will integrate the Central Individual Credit Register (CICR) with BECRIS, their existing system, as part of their initiative to modernize their credit data collection system. This integration will expand BECRIS to replace the current CKP/CCP application and provide comprehensive credit reporting for institutions issuing credit contracts to individuals.

Managing granular data reporting challenges

The goal for regulators is to see greater transparency and enhanced data governance. They are looking to build better data-driven insights, and encourage evidence-based, objective decision-making. We understand there may be challenges that come with achieving these goals. Let us help you overcome these common challenges so you can meet regulatory requirements with confidence.

Lack of time

Existing systems and teams are struggling to accommodate the new demands of short lead-time for large data sets and have limited expertise in GDR.

Cost and performance

Consolidation and submission of granular data requires a highly performant system. Without a proper solution, banks will spend significant cost to comply.

Complex data processes

Increasingly complex granular data collection and reporting processes leads to accuracy, timeliness, and performance issues. Extensive data validation and verification are needed.

Data availability

Many banks are struggling to find the data in their existing systems. Planning and early action for system enhancement is required.
