Short Course in Regulatory Reporting in ROI

IFS Skillnet and CBI logos

This course qualifies for IFS Skillnet funding, see programme details for more information.

About the course

IOB is delighted to introduce the Regulatory Reporting in ROI training course and professional designation of Regulatory Reporting Professional (RRP).

Participants will gain new, practical skills associated with the mechanics of regulatory reporting. Irish banks operate in a regulated environment which requires them to submit a wide range of supervisory and statistical regulatory returns, for multiple licensed entities, to regulators and supervisors.

These returns must be prepared to a very high standard, in a controlled manner, and submitted on a timely basis.

The prudential supervisory returns provide the regulators and supervisors with critical information about the financial, risk, capital and liquidity positions of the supervised entities. The information contained in the statistical returns provides regulators and policy makers with sector and industry information which helps shape macro-economic policy.

How you will benefit

The course is designed to provide participants with:

  • Core knowledge with respect to the risks within the banking sector that the regulators are monitoring via the regulatory returns

  • Regulatory reporting skills to ensure compliance with the regulatory demands for more detailed and robust regulatory reporting.

The course comprises of six one-day practical modules with each module examining the main characteristics of each principal risk area, the key regulations which are in force and the applicable reporting requirements.


The course is delivered on a part-time basis and for each module, lectures will take place online, live, using Zoom. Course commences 27 November.

On successful completion of this course, participants will be invited to apply for the professional designation, Regulatory Reporting Professional (RRP), from IOB. The designation is maintained through completion and return of annual CPD hours. The annual Regulatory Reporting Professional CPD Scheme subscription is €105.


An assessment is attached to each module to ensure that the learning outcomes associated with the module have been achieved.

The assessment will take the form of a learning journal recorded by course participants during and on completion of each module.

A learning journal is a reflective log that records a participant’s learning experience of a particular topic/module. It allows participants to reflect on how their study and learning has developed during each module, what they are learning and the relevance or application of this learning to their own experiences in a work setting.

The content of the learning journal will be unique to each participant and will reflect their experiences during the class and their own interpretation of the material provided.

The learning journal will be evaluated and graded by the Programme Director to assess the participant’s knowledge, synthesis, analysis and development.

Entry requirements

You must be a current member of IOB, or become a member, to undertake this course.
