2 EU principles of transparency and non-discrimination Fundamental principles of the EC LawIncreasing the competitiveness and support the movement of servicesMember states must transpose the EU Directives with precision, clarity and transparency to enable individuals to ascertain their obligationsProviding significant impulses for harmonization in different business areasOne of them: ICT - information and communication technologiesICT provides services for the industrial society which are essential to be competitive against markets in and outside of the EUICT contribute to the overall business successPreconditionICT applications must be interoperable to provide efficient access to information and their distributionIn this sense: The harmonization of the supervisory reporting in Europe by using DPM and XBRL is an important field of activity.
3 Technical background for the definition of filing rules XBRL is a framework for the definition of data formatsprovides a high degree of flexibility for the creation of taxonomies and instance documentsflexibility requires complex IT systems to react appropriately on all possible variants that the standard allows,like definition of units, accuracy of values, usage of footnotes, periods, identifiers etc.
4 Definition and Advantages Rules to be followed for the preparation and validation of instance documents in a XBRL filing process whichplace additional constraints on XBRL instance documents.AdvantagesProvide harmonization on a technical levelEnhance the interoperability of IT systemsEase the comparison of reporting dataEase the validation of instance documentsGive rules to reporting entities as guidanceDecrease the reporting burden for reporting entitiesEnable automated tests on the rule setXBRL Filing?

7 Modeling the European Filing Rules Meta modelObject systemmodelingModel systemObject system comprises the clearly delimited real system and also its relevant environment.The object system is the XBRL instance document and the constraints defined on the preparation of XBRL instance documents. The constraints are based on the objects contained in an instance document and the relations among each other.Meta model provides model components, rules on how to combine components and the meaning (semantic) for the components and relations.UML class diagram to describe the structure of the XBRL instance by showing the classes, their attributes and possible methods.OCL (Object Constraint Language) is a formal language for specifications, which refers to an UML model to describe constraints about the objects in the model.Model system must be consistent and complete. It must reflect the structure of the object system.
10 Analysis based on the following publications CEN: European Filing Rules. December 2013 (after approval by the stakeholders)EBA: XBRL Filing Rules COREP and FINREP Taxonomy v2.

12 Level of harmonisation CEN <-> EBA CEN rules adopted by EBAMarch 20148 of 32 define a different severityNumber of CEN rules: 34Number of EBA rules: 39CENEBA
13 Issues identified CEN <-> EBA First set of rules was reduced from 48 to 35 rulesSome previously rejected rules have been added to the EBA rule setOne rule seems to have a lack of detailsThe indication of the severity is unclearis required = MUSTis recommended = SHOULD; sometimes MAY
14 Level of harmonisation EBA <-> NCAs EBA rules adopted by DE, DK, UKMarch 2014EBANCAs
16 Problems identified EBA <-> NCAs Harmonisation on technical level is not reachedInternational acting reporting entities have to be prepared for the different validation requirementsSome based on national language-dependent descriptionNCAs might need to amend the file for transmitting it to ECB or EBA (i.e. duplicate facts are not restricted)Software prepared for the validation of the EBA Filing Rules does not cover all rules defined across Europe
17 Possible counter-measures Amending the CEN Filing Rules according to the amendments introduced by EBAInterested parties?Define a clear severity for each ruleEase the description of the rule (too technical?)Raise awareness in the Eurofiling communityEurofiling workshop (Done!)Conference callPublication of the analysis results at eurofiling.infoRaise the issue at EBA level
