Bank of England OSCA to BEEDS - UAT & On-Boarding Survey Reminder

As outlined in our two recent Statistical Notices 2021/09 and 2021/10, all statistical reporting Firms are required to complete the on-boarding Key Survey by 5pm on Friday 29 October, regardless of whether the Firm already currently uses BEEDS to submit other collections.

If you have not yet submitted your survey/s, please do so by following the Key Survey link, ensuring you complete all fields as soon as possible.

As a reminder, Firms should complete separate surveys for their unconsolidated and consolidated reporting requirements, including your electronic reporting codes (OSCA codes) for each.

Firms who only report Forms MM and MQ should also complete the survey.

If you are a software vendor and wish to participate in the November UAT window, please email to inform us by 5pm on Friday 29 October.

Statistics Taxonomy – Corrections

Please note that the Statistics Taxonomy package and all accompanying documents have been republished as we have made a minor correction. Only the taxonomy package and change log files have been amended since v1.2.0

Version 1.2.1 of the Bank of England Statistics Taxonomy is a minor update to ensure row, column and sheet codes are correctly identified within the label linkbase files. The changes are limited to only -lab-codes.xml files and as such this update does not affect instance files generated against the taxonomy package.

Please refer to the Bank of England Statistics Release Note v121 – October 2021 for full details of the changes made.
