Data Collection by Supervisors of DFS: Examples, Cases, and Templates

This collection of tools is a supplement to the following official and peer reviewed CGAP publication: Data Collection by Supervisors of Digital Financial Services (2017).

The collection comprises examples of digital financial services (DFS) report templates that are used by supervisory authorities in a variety of countries. 

These tools are for e-money issuers and their agents, bank agents, retail payments statisticians, and others. Some of the documents that DFS supervisors may find useful include an example of data dictionary and taxonomy, a presentation about the data collection system of the Austrian central bank, an example of data strategy, and several examples of reporting guidance.
