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.
