PRISMA – Bundesbank project for
improvement of message processing

01/17/2022 – The Federal Reserve held a launch event for PRISMA (Prudential Reporting, Integrated Services and Management Architecture). The intention of PRISMA is to ensure uniform processing of submitted reports, including improved quality assurance and subsequent forwarding to the EBA and ECB.

From August of this year, the first test reports can be submitted, before finally, from 01/01/2024, the ITS and RTF reports, as well as all correction reports on previous cut-off dates, must be submitted via PRISMA.

The introduction of PRISMA will result in the following changes for reporting institutions:

  • Setting up new PRISMA mailboxes for correspondence
  • LEI becomes part of the XBRL reporting file (for RTF reporting the lender number).
  • Collective submission of multiple XBRL files is no longer possible
  • Contact details for the messages are transmitted in a separate XBRL file
  • So far only feedback after technical check – in future also after statistical checks as well as cross-period and cross-module checks
  • Introduction of a report on the overall status:
    – Information on outstanding messages
    – Findings from checks and validations
    – Correction requests
    – Warnings

  • Introduction of a dedicated test system at the Bundesbank

The following diagram illustrates the future, Bundesbank-side process for receiving and reviewing reports:
