On Tuesday 6 June 2017, ESMA will hold a workshop on the European Single Electronic Format. This workshop is organised in the context of Eurofiling XBRL week and is open to the interested public, free of charge.
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) is drafting a regulatory technical standard (RTS) specifying an European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) in which annual financial reports have to be prepared. ESMA published in December 2016 a Feedback Statement on its consultation that sets out the general approach and is currently working on the detailed technical specifications.
In this context, the objective of the workshop is to inform participants about the current considerations regarding the detailed technical specifications as well as to provide them with an opportunity to comment on the working draft of the regulatory extension taxonomy and the filing rules.
This workshop is addressed to financial reporting and IT experts from filers, regulators, consulting and software firms. Considering the technical nature of the content, participants should have knowledge in XBRL/Inline XBRL.
