SRB Update

SRF taxonomy will be published at the end of July.

RES taxonomy will be published in September.

This taxonomy will be an extension of the EBA 3.1.p2 release adding entry points and validation rules.

MREL/TLAC will be collected by SRB using the taxonomy provided by the EBA as is.

The data will be forwarded to the EBA.

Whether the data can be forwarded to the ECB as well depends on the outcome of legal discussions.

If not, the NRA’s will need to provide the data to the ECB.

ESMA update

ESMA is finalizing a new version of the reporting manual which is expected to be published Mid July.

It will provide (amongst others) additional guidance on stand alone xHTML files without tagging.

ESMA is also working on a new version of the taxonomy.

EBA update

3.0 taxonomy

A list of known issues is made and send to the Eurofiling group last week.

Thereafter some other issues have been raised by an NCA.

When confirmed, the list of known issues will be updated and shared again.

The issues found force the deactivation of some 30 validation rules.

An updated exclusion list will be published by EBA later this week.


This version is published in May.

Some minor issues are reported in the json metadata files provided for reporting in xBRL-CSV.

These issues will be fixed in the 3.1.p2 release.


This version in currently undergoing review by the Board of Supervisors.

Publication is expected around July 7th.

This publication will contain two packages. One package will contain the taxonomy based on XML node navigation (as used for all previous releases). The second package will contain a taxonomy that uses the new functions from the XBRL registry that enable validation rules to be format (e.g. xBRL-XML or xBRL-CSV) independent.


Expected first reference date is September 2022.

This taxonomy will only be published with the format independent functions.

XBRL Sub Group

The EBA XBRL Sub Group, held on June 16th, discussed simplifications and clarifications for filing indicators. Outcome is that as of 3.2 a report MUST contain a filing indicator (either negative or positive) for each template defined in the module.

In addition a filing rule will be added requiring every report to contain at least a single (positive or negative) filing indicator.

Also discussed was the inclusion of the consolidation level in the reporting entity. The discussion will continue at the next meeting of the group.

ECB update

SFRDP 5.0 release was published mid-June just after the publication of the applicable regulation.

EIOPA update

Feedback period for the 2.6.0 release is closed. The final version of the 2.6.0 taxonomy is scheduled for publication in mid-July.

Past events

Some errors were found by users in the sample instances provided by EBA: naming convention not adhered to and samples for removed frameworks still exist. These errors will be fixed by EBA.

Release 3.1 is expected to be published by end of May. That could move to early June.

Please note that EBA has an email alert service that includes releases of the taxonomy. You can sign up to it from their website https://www.eba.europa.eu/subscription-page. There is also an rss service

There was a political agreement on the member state option to delay ESEF obligations by one year at the end of 2019.

Some Member States have already informed their issuers about their decision on delaying or not.

Information on which Member States will delay ESEF will be available on the European Commission website (page dedicated to the Transparency Directive) as soon as Member States will notify the delay to the Commission.


Data Amplified will be organised on 14, 15 and 16 April via web.

Eurofiling sent out a survey on topics for events. (https://eurofiling.info/portal/survey)

First results are that there is strong interest in supervisory reporting (EBA/ECB/EIOPA/SRB), ESEF (ESMA) on a quarterly basis for 2 hours in the afternoon.

Eurofiling also sent out a survey to find out of there is interest in receiving or providing (paid) XBRL training.

Topics mentioned introduction to XBRL, ESEF, supervisory reporting and assurance on XBRL. Limited interested in technically more advanced topics like DPM.

More response is very welcome, so please go to https://eurofiling.info/.

ESMA update
No major updates in terms of taxonomies; draft RTS is still being considered for adoption by the EC.
After adoption new labels and translations will be published in the new taxonomy, together with conformance suites.
The EU council is considering to allowing member states to postpone the mandatory ESEF filing with one year. Each member state has to decide whether or not to use that ability. ESMA is not involved in this decision process. Voluntary adoption of ESEF by individual issuers alongside the original schedule is allowed and encouraged, nonetheless.

This first phase will be made available to NCA’s for review this week. It includes updated for the frameworks COREP, FINREP, AE and a new framework GSII.
Phase 2 (expected early December) will contain another new framework MREL/TLAC.
As of EBA 3.0 EBA will use a different architecture for the taxonomy: the severity level of assertions will be moved in a new location in the taxonomy so that this aspect can be maintained separately from the validation rules.
Version 3.1 is planned for February next year, it will be possible for NCAs (and their banks) to start using the XBRL-CSV file format from that taxonomy version.
