  • 3.0 is planned for development starting in August and publication in October 2020. EBA is conducting a study on the reporting format with a Task Force including ECB and EIOPA.

More specifically this task force is looking at the problems with large instances and validation performance.

  • EBA also works on guidelines for reporting by banks around COVID-19.


Comments from ECB:

  • ECB is testing SFRDP 4.0.0 taxonomy based on the latest changes made by the EBA in DPM

No update from ESMA.

Other comments, made during the call:

  • ESMA has published the “ESEF Conformance Suite” to facilitate implementation of the ESEF Regulation, to test and provide assurance on whether software tools are able to create and / or consume filings which are in line with all ESEF requirements. In particular, the Conformance Suite permits to determine if a software is able to detect and flag infringements to the ESEF requirements contained in a filing.

The Conformance Suite builds on the rules and guidance set out by the ESEF Regulation and the ESEF Reporting Manual. It consists of 157 XBRL report packages, grouped into 60 tests, packaged in a zip file. It is accompanied by an Excel file which describes the rules and guidelines and the test cases, together with the expected error codes in case of incompliance. For each identified rule and guideline there is at least one valid and one invalid test case.

Comments from organisation committee:

  • Eurofiling Conference is postponed until the situation is more clear. Face-to-face meetings are highly unlikely before the summer. Eurofiling thinks about sharing pertinent information via webinars in a kind of virtual conference. With most Europeans working from home, live broadcasting may be a challenge.

Other business:

Comments made the call:

  • Some initiatives arise in the XBRL community around non-financial reporting:

The UK FRC has published The Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting (SECR) Taxonomy.

Responses can be send to the Eurofiling mailing group and be picked up by members of the working group.

Comments from ECB:
• ECB is finalising SFRDP 4.0.0 taxonomy based on the latest changes made by the EBA in DPM
• It will be made public once the necessary changes in the ECB regulation are published.

Comments from EIOPA:
• EIOPA opened on 5 Feb 2020 a public consultation for the review of the technical means. The consultation will close on 20 Apr 2020 and you can find more information on this link: https://www.eiopa.europa.eu/content/review-technical-implementation-means-package-solvency-2-supervisory-reporting-and-public
• EIOPA will publish as every year on 15 July the new taxonomy version. In this case 2.5.0 for Solvency 2 and for Pension Funds. However, for Solvency 2 this year the changes will be only technical corrections as the regulation is not amended.

Other comments, made during the call:
• There are some labels in the SRF taxonomy with texts like “auto complete. Do not fill in”. These labels were included in the taxonomy to be compliant with the official legal template, since the SRB itself uses the taxonomy as sole rendering resource for its collection system.

2021 collection exercise is started with EBA with 2.10 RESOL taxonomy; an SRB extension is expected this summer).

ESMA update

ESMA is working on the following:

  • Preparation of ESEF conformance suite test files.
  • Preparation of an exemplary Annual Report in ESEF format in collaboration with the Global LEI Foundation.
  • Preparation of a Meet the Market event to explore the differences and similarities between ESEF and EDGAR reporting requirements for the benefit of FPIs filing to both the EU and the US. The event will take place on 5 February in Milan at the margins of XBRL Europe Day.

Please take note of 2019 ESEF taxonomy files published by ESMA at the end of the year, that followed the in the Official Journal of the EU of the draft RTS updating the RTS on ESEF.

XBRL Spain is working on test material for ESEF.

This is part of the big 2020 review of the Solvency II and it follows the business consultations done during 2019 for the review of the business requirements.

EIOPA will migrate the website on the first week of February. Some temporary unavailability of files may occur, in particular for the canonical location of the XBRL taxonomy files (htttp://eiopa.europa.eu/eu). EIOPA highlights the importance of using the taxonomy package which should not be affected. The assertion deactivations (hosted in the subdomain dev.eiopa) should not be affected.

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

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)
Phase 2 in May (SBP, RES, FR Trading Book)

EIOPA update
EIOPA has published updates on the 2.4 taxonomy and pension funds. More info on https://eiopa.europa.eu/Pages/Supervision/Insurance/Data-Point-Model-and-XBRL.aspx

Upcoming events

The question is raised how to move towards a reporting framework which is adopted and maybe even imposed at some point.
A volunteer network is being set up to explore the possibilities which will be picked up during the UN Climate Change Conference on December 9.

– XBRL France conference in Paris in December

Next call in January 2020. Wish you a merry Xmas and happy New Year!

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.
