EBA update

Filing rules v5.1 was published on 19 October on Reporting framework 3.2 | European Banking Authority (europa.eu) to improve two rules:

  1. Modify rule 1.6 to simplify the usage of filing indicator by removing the option “empty filing indicator”. This updated rule must be followed from 2023-01-01 for all the submissions and resubmissions.
  2. Modify rule 3.6 to improve CON/IND information circulation and to allow for multiple consolidation levels for an entity, CON/IND is being moved from module name to reporting subjects from reference date 31/12/2022 onwards.

We are now reopening TFERF (taskforce for evolving reporting format) with NCAs and XBRL international to improve the Formula specification and to define the timeline to mandate the csv format.

3.2 phase1 is in development (COREP, AE, GSII, IF), aim to have draft review in December.

ECB update

No updates reported.

EIOPA update

Preparation and publication of 2.6.0 Hot Fix (Corrective release for insurance and pensions). Only includes changes to the validations. This will be published on Wednesday 3 November 2021.

On PEPP, EIOPA will continue working during next two months on taxonomy and annotated Templates for 2.5.1 PEPP Prudential as well as on the inclusion of PEPP reporting in the insurance and IORPs reporting.

EIOPA is in the process to assess, together with NCA’s, the need and readiness for using the xBRL-CSV format for data collection.

ESMA update

ESMA is changing the staff working on ESEF.

That staff is working on finalizing the 2021 taxonomy files and conformance suite. The taxonomy will be based on the IFRS 2021 taxonomy.

Publication and use depends on approval by the European Co-legislators of the relevant delegated act. This approval is expected by February of 2022.

Entities that want to report before approval is given, can use the current version of the taxonomy.

SRB update

Single Resolution Fund data collection:

Portal will be open beginning of November for testing purposes by NRAs.

Resolution data collection:

The “complete” taxonomy package provided by SRB was missing a couple of files owned by XBRL International. These have been added. Nothing changed in the SRB taxonomy itself.

The portal will be open for testing by NRAs in the beginning of February 2022; go-live in production is always one month later than the testing portal.

SRB has issued filing rules for Impracticability reporting: https://www.srb.europa.eu/system/files/media/document/SRB%20XBRL%20Filing%20rules%20for%20the%202021%20notification%20of%20impracticability%20of%20bail-in%20v.1.1.pdf.

EBA update


Taxonomy 3.1.p2 is published in July.

Taxonomy 3.2 will come in 2 phases: 3.2.p1 in December 2021, 3.2.p2 in May 2022 (provisional planning)

3.2.p1 will contain updates for frameworks COREP, IF, AE, G-SII. The updates for COREP will address the issues identified in release 3.1. COREP-ALMM is expected to change significantly

3.2.p2 will contain updates for frameworks SBP and REN.


COREP-NSFR: the Sub Group on Reporting discussed the impact of the unintended duplication of data point definitions. A fix would require a new release of the 3.1 framework. The impact of that (e.g. delay of 3.2) is considered to be too big.

Filing Rules

EBA will change filing rules 1.6 (filing indicators) and 3.6 (reporting subject identification), the document is currently being reviewed by NCAs (xBRL subgroup)

These changes will come into effect as of 1 Jan 2023 with the applicability (for most frameworks) of EBA 3.2.

EBA 1.6: all filing indicators must be reported, either with a positive of negative value, applicable from 01 Jan 2023 for all the submissions and resubmissions.

EBA 3.6: the consolidation level must be included in the reporting subject, applicable from the reference date 31 12 2022 onwards.

This means that the consolidation level will no longer be included in the module , as is currently done for most frameworks.

EBA 3.2.p2 will therefore contain new versions of frameworks FINREP, RES, COVID19, PAY and MREL to only change the module name, no content changes.


EBA intends to mandate the use of the xBRL-CSV format as of 1 January 2024, assuming readiness of specifications and availability of software solutions. EBA will monitor this closely and adapt if necessary.

ECB update

No changes expected in 2022 for the ECB taxonomies.

EIOPA update

Solvency II 2.6.0 for insurers and pension funds is published.

PEPP 2.6.1 is published

EIOPA plans to provides updates to the validation rules on a monthly basis.

For SII release 2.7 for insurers two working drafts will be published. In February 2022 a version containing the reporting requirements. The second version published in June will contain the validation rules and any improvements following comments on the February release. As usual a final release will follow in July and, in applicable, a hotfix later in the year (October).

For SII release 2.7 for pension funds a significant update is expected. This to improve alignment to SII for insurers, add new business rules and other goals. A consultation on the changes will be held in December of 2021. A draft taxonomy will follow in June. The final version will come in July and a hotfix (if needed) later in the year, just as is done for SII for insurers.

The hotfix for SII v2.6.0 contains only minor fixes.

ESMA update

No update from ESMA.

SRB update

SRF taxonomy v7.0.2 is publicly available: https://www.srb.europa.eu/en/content/2022-srf-levies-ex-ante-contributions

RES taxonomy v6.0.3, based on EBA 3.1, is ready for publication.

It contains additional entry points and validation rules, but no additional data points when compared to the EBA taxonomy.

Samples are available, including files that comply to all validation rules.

Events update

November 16 – 18: XBRL International virtual conference.

November 22 – 24: XBRL Europe ESEF week (virtual)

December 2021: Eurofiling session on free tools for ESEF and the ISO standard for Data Point Modelling.

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.

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.

LDR will be based on the Resolution framework provided by the EBA 3.1 taxonomy.

EBA update

3.0 Phase 1 is published.

Errors were found in the definitions of table C 47 and C 84 resulting in an in place update (a.k.a. hotfix) of the taxonomy leaving the publication date unchanged. Please note that the instance files created with the initial version are not compatible with this updated version of the taxonomy.

3.0 Phase 2 is expected to be published by the end of February. EBA plans to release an internal draft to NCAs for testing around mid February.

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

EIOPA and EBA have resumed the work on DPM refit initiative. We encourage to the NCA to provide feedback about the first shared package by the end of January.

ESMA & ESEF update

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/.

Taxonomy 3.1 is planned for release in February of 2021 containing, amongst others, data collections for investment firms.
This release will contain the JSON metadata necessary for submitting reports in the XBRL-CSV format.

Info: EBA is collecting REMUN data at the moment for reference date 2019-12-31

ECB update:
ECB has started development of the SFRDP taxonomy extension, which is an extension of the EBA 3.0 taxonomy. ECB expects to publish the taxonomy in February 2021.
ECB is investigating the cost-benefit analysis for the usage of xBRL-CSV.

EIOPA update:
EIOPA is finalising the PEPP KID taxonomy that will be published by end February 2021. This is the first package corresponding with the new EIOPA´s PEPP regulation.

ESMA update:
The EU has adopted the RTS and ESMA is now finalising the labels and translations in the 2020 taxonomy package. Publication will be done in the next several weeks, together with an updated conformance suite package.
A question was asked on the diversity of implementation of the requirements on audit of ESEF in different Member States. ESMA indicated that it has no direct role in this topic, but that some degree of coordination is taking place within the CEAOB (Committee of European Audit Oversight Bodies) through meetings in a dedicated task force, to which ESMA is also observer.

SRB update:
SRF taxonomy 6.0.2 is being used; no changes made yet.
ResRep taxonomy 5.0.7 production portal will be open in March for NRAs.
Some applications that a based on a component from a single vendor produce errors for rules v1052-v1061. This processor is too strict in its handling of filing indicators. SRB will send an informative document to NCA’s shortly.

Upcoming events :
– in December some European XBRL jurisdictions are organising ESEF information sessions in the same week, see info on https://eurofiling.info/portal/events/.
– 17.12.2020: Eurofiling is organising a “Celebration of Hope“.
