ESMA update
ESMA is planning the publication of the ESEF 2019 taxonomy before the end of the year, after notification by the EC in the OJEU.
Eurofiling received an open source contribution from XBRL Spain to enrich the 2017 taxonomy with missing label roles.
Material is available op opensource.info

Further, a simple generation tool to generate an ESEF file from Excel and/or Word documents is made by Ignacio Boixo and Javi Mora which will be soon made public on opensource.info. This tool is useful for simple use cases and learning purposes.

ESMA emphasizes that issuers are only compliant with the regulation if the publication to the public (eg. on their website) is the same as the xHTML document they send to their OAM and if any additional publication to the public (e.g. in PDF) is consistent in terms of content with the xHTML document.

In the wake of the ESEF, European Investors Community is looking into standardising some concepts of interest to investors.

SRB update
Contributions 5.1.1 taxonomy is installed and NRAs can start testing. End of January is the
Resolution data are collected on taxonomy 4.0.3, which includes all reports such as critical functions and

Taxonomy 2.9.1 is released in November, concerns COREP and FINREP. These taxonomies are updated after discovery of number of issues with ao. grey cells.
January 2020: an update will follow with only updated validation rules on COREP and FINREP.
EBA is elaborating 2.10 which will be released in two phases:
Phase 1 in Feb (Funding Plans, Remuneration and Fraudulent Payments)

Call for participation

EBA will send a call for participation to the member states to work together on improving data collection and data modelling.

For improving data collection xBRL-CSV will be discussed.

ECB update

Not discussed.

EIOPA update

EIOPA is reviewing the current approach of the taxonomy, for instance the way the taxonomy schedule, the files structure and the way the validation is done. OIM-CSV is part of the review. This will lead to a consultation on the outcomes of that review in November and a Meet-the-Market in the fall of 2019 or early 2020.

Another legislative public consultation in 2019 will be held on the regulation regarding Pan European Pension Products.

The outcome of the tender on XBRL services will be made public in the coming weeks.

A potential technical issue has be found by a software vendor in the labels used for the new members that EIOPA has added to prepare for UK post Brexit. An email will be send to EIOPA with the details.

ESMA update

ESMA is waiting on EC’s translations of the labels which will be included in the taxonomy files for the 2019 ESEF taxonomy. Those are expected before the end of the year.

SRB update

SRF taxonomy version 5.1 is published on https://srb.europa.eu/en/content/2020-ex-ante-contributions in line with the new requirements, including also the Bulgarian language.

LDR taxonomy version 4.0 is expected to be published around the end of the month, based on EBA RES framework.

Other topics raised.

Discussion on the role of and need for various open source initiatives.

One central question raised is how and if there will be a validation service organised by Europe to testify if ESEF declarations are valid or not against the XBRL standard.

At this moment there are no plans to centrally organise this, each OAM will need to address the topic.

European Commission is updating the rolling plan on standardisation of ICT.

Minutes April 24, 2019

EBA update

Taxonomy 2.9 is being produced and reviewed.
Expected releases:

  • Phase 1 in a few weeks with COREP and RES reporting
  • Phase 2 towards end of June with FINREP and other reporting

The phase 2 release will also include a complete taxonomy with all frameworks (“full version”) next to packages with only the changed frameworks.

SBP will probably be provided separately to enable parties to implement that framework first as is needed already in October.

The dictionaries to be used ‘in the end’ will be the ones from the phase 2 release. There will be no specific different number for the dictionaries in the 2nd phase release; or at best

Taxonomy 2.8: a 2.8.1 hotfix was discussed in the past but it’s not going to be produced.

DPM Architect news
Banco de España is working on a new release of the DPM Architect application that is enhanced to reflect the architectural changes made in the 2.9 version of the EBA taxonomy.

ECB update

ECB announced that there is no news on its taxonomies.

ESMA update

Publication of the ESEF in the OJEU is expected in June.
ESMA updates its RTS and taxonomy soon with the latest version of the IFRS taxonomy published in March 2019.

Issuers will then be able to use in 2020 this updated IFRS version.

The taxonomy is expected to be released after the endorsement of the RTS and the official translations by the EC. Probably around the year-end.

It is observed by the industry that the IFRS taxonomy labels in some languages are overruled by the European official translations. During the Eurofiling conference this topic will be discussed in detail on Monday morning.

EIOPA update

Very few changes so far. End of May the technical logs of the pension funds taxonomy will be updated.

Still on track for the draft release of SII in June.

SRB update

For the 2020 cycle, the  data collection will be an extension of the 2.9 taxonomy published by the EBA (Phase I).

For LDR new templates T10 and T11 will be included in this extension for additional data points required by SRB, besides entry points needed by SRB.

The extension is planned publication around September.

There may be an update of the SRB dictionaries.

Events update

– XEU meeting in month of May: no update

– Eurofiling Conference, June 17-18-19 at ECB premises in Frankfurt.

Agenda is gradually being filled online.

Minutes March 27, 2019

27 March 2019 call is opened at 10h30 by Paul Hulst.

Roundtable on EBA, ECB, EIOPA, ESMA, SRB taxonomies and reporting requirements.

around the implementation of the EBA taxonomy

EBA has shared an internal working draft of the 2.9 taxonomy with NCA’s.

Comments on this version:

  • New datatype trueitemType is introduced that results in problems at the processing and/or BI-systems of some NCA’s.

A second hotfix is under consideration by EBA for 2.8.1. Most noteworthy is the change of the datatype for metric pi554 from decimalitemType to percentitemType.

Banco de España is investigating the changes that are necessary to DPM Architect to make it capable of handling these new versions.

around the Finrep data points taxonomy of ECB

A new version of the Finrep Data Points taxonomy is planned by the ECB to accommodate updates of the regulation.

Publication of the taxonomy depends on the availability of the EBA 2.9 taxonomy (Finrep framework) and the publication of the regulation itself. Given those dependencies it will most likely be after the summer of 2019.

First reference data for this new version is to be set, a likely date is 31/03/2020.

around the implementation of the EIOPA taxonomy

No update from EIOPA.

around the roadmap of ESMA on iXBRL / ESEF

A new version of the taxonomy is published by ESMA.

Noteworthy about this new version are placeholders for labels and formula’s.

around the planned implementation of EBA’s RES and SRB’s LDR taxonomy

SRB shares the update:

    • Data collection for the Liability Data Report for 2019 is underway.
      Severity of some validation rules have been changes by SRB from error to warning. SRB has shared information on this with the NRAs. SRB couldn’t publish information on the public website.
      SRB is looking into communication about these kind of changes for future releases.
    • SRF taxonomy is probably ready by the end of July 2019. It contains only small changes when compared to the current version, primarily validation rules.
      Collection of the report is planned for November 2019.
    • LDR taxonomy 2020 will again be an extension of the EBA taxonomy (i.e. 2.9). Extension necessary to provide more entry points.
      LDR taxonomy is scheduled for publication in September of 2019.
    • Critical Functions Information and Financial Market Information + all Z-templates will be collected in XBRL in 2020.

upcoming events

23rd XBRL Europe Day in Paris on 28 – 29 May in Paris.

Eurofiling event is on track, 17-18-19 June at ECB in Frankfurt.

Minutes February 27, 2019

Roundtable on EBA, ECB, EIOPA, ESMA, SRB taxonomies and reporting requirements.

around the implementation of the EBA taxonomy

EBA explains on 2.9 taxonomy

    • released in two parts:
      • first part in April / May containing COREP, LCR and Resolution frameworks
      • second part in June / July containing FINREP, AE and SBP frameworks. A new framework will be added for remuneration data.
      • Dictionary will be updated in both parts.
    • 2.9 Resolution will contains both an CON and IND entry point.
    • 2.9 Supervisory Benchmarking Portfolios: the dropdown lists for instruments and portfolios are still managed outside the taxonomy because these lists are not final from a legal point of view.
    • 2.9 Renumeration: first reference date for submission of this data using the taxonomy is under discussion. Uncertain if this taxonomy will be used before 2021.

EBA is studying CRR2 and considering the impact on the EBA taxonomy (to become v2.10). EBA is considering adapting the technical setup of the taxonomy as well.

The approach to updating validation rules is ongoing. There is no other mechanism today than publishing a hotfix to the taxonomy to achieve this.

around the Finrep datapoints taxonomy of ECB

No update from the ECB.

around the implementation of the EIOPA taxonomy

EIOPA explains that the publication of 2.4 will as usual in June-July, but there is a risk of a small delay this year.

Public consultation for the 2020 review for Solvency II is ongoing, feedback from the industry is appreciated.

around the roadmap of ESMA on iXBRL / ESEF

No update from ESMA.

around the planned implementation of EBA’s RES and SRB’s LDR taxonomy

SRB shares the update:

    • Data collection for the contribution for 2020 is being prepared as we speak.
      SRF taxonomy is probably ready by the end of July 2019. It contains only small changes when compared to the current version.
    • Resolution reporting for 2020, SRB collaborates with EBA.
      LDR taxonomy will again be an extension of the EBA taxonomy. Extension necessary to provide more entry points and cover some information that is not part of the EBA mandate.
      LDR taxonomy is scheduled for publication in September of 2019.
    • CF/FMI + all Z-templates will be collected in XBRL in 2020.

Upcoming events

Eurofiling event is being prepared, 17-18-19 June at ECB.

Keynote speakers confirmed from EBA and SRB addressing the future on data collection.


Public consultation about environmental impact in the industry. This looks like a good case for structured information.


call is closed at 11h00

next call is on Wednesday 27 March 2019.

Minutes January 30, 2019

Meeting minutes

Group is discussing various topics:

around EBA taxonomy

  • EBA comments to be working on the 2.9 release. Probably will be released in 2 large chunks, due to different dates the legislation becomes active. The way consolidation levels are implemented is likely to be the same as in previous versions of the EBA taxonomy. Proposals from different parties for improvements are still under review.
  • EBA is also working on an improved way of validation rules, messages and the way to update such rules.
    EBA is also looking into adding explanations, comments or footnotes in reports.  The tricky part will be to enforce that comments should not overrule the fact values. As these enhancements are under discussion in the various groups of the EBA a data for implementation isn’t known yet.
  • 2.8 reporting has started and is in progress.

around ECB taxonomy

  • Finrep datapoints taxonomy: nothing new to report on the current datapoints taxonomy.

around EIOPA taxonomy

  • EIOPA will update in the coming weeks the public website with the 2019 taxonomy milestones. Currently expected:
    • Solvency 2 update for 2.4.0 with relatively minor changes in the business and XBRL architecture sides.
      Using version 2 of the enumerations specification, that will allow a reported fact to contain multiple values from a list, is considered for use.
    • For Pension Funds. If there are not major issues EIOPA does plan not to publish the 2.4.0 for PF. Using therefore the current published 2.3.0 PF will be used for the 2019Q3 till 2020Q3 ref. dates reporting. And the 2.5.0 to be realised in for 2020Q4 ref. dates onwards.
  • EIOPA most probably will launch a public tender for DPM and XBRL services in the coming 4-6 weeks.
  • EIOPA will ask the all involved parties for suggestions on improving the reporting process. A mail on this is already shared with the Eurofiling community.

around ESMA on iXBRL / ESEF

  • Since the last call, the European Commission has endorsed the ESEF regulation, we are now in a period where comments are still possible (http://eurofiling.info/portal/esef-green-light-on-endorsement-of-the-rts/)
  • Taxonomy package will be isued in the next few months. The IFRS taxonomy 2017 is referenced herein.  An update to reference the 2019 version is under consideration.
  • Note: the translations in the publication of the EU is not related to the translations in the IFRS taxonomy.
  • Hence, the official EU tranlations will be included in the taxonomy.
  • Caveat: translations may be even slightly different between one member state and another.

around SRB SRF & LDR, relation to the EBA’s RES taxonomy

  • It’s observed that the ‘Excel list of validations’ features confusing numbers for validation rules. This is communicated to the SRB. Further it’s stated that the LDT and RES taxonomies are currently being used across the EU for various purposes.

around upcoming events

  • XBRL EU day in Rome in February 7 & 8
  • Eurofiling event, June 17-18-19 at the premises of the ECB (http://2019.eurofiling.info/) Early registration is recommended as seats are limited. Early booking of travel and accommodation is recommended as well since other events at the same time will make them scarce and expensive.


  • The Municipalities initiative from XBRL US with the state of Florida is discussed


Adjourned at 11h15. Next call on Wednesday 28 February 2019.
