The Bank of England has reminded firms that from December, the OSCA submission portal will be retired.
The Bank of England has issued a Statistical Notice to remind reporting institutions that from 1 December 2022, the OSCA submission portal (production and pre-production environments) will no longer be available for use.
Instead, from the above date, statistical data must be submitted using the new BEEDS portal. Returns must be submitted in XBRL format, not XML as previously, and it won’t be possible to upload data manually in the new BEEDS system.
The Bank of England first announced that the OSCA submission portal would be replaced in late 2020.
More information and a BEEDS user guide by the Bank of England can be found here.
