IN WHICH SECTORS ?

3 XBRL Projects in Europe by sector – October 2009

4 XBRL Projects in Europe 48 XBRL country level Projects in 17 European Countries (14 in the EU) at various status (established or in progress) Banking Sector (Corep & Finrep and others): 11 projects, 6 established, 5 in progress and 6 are for mandatory filings. Business register sector: 13 projects, 5 established, 8 in progress and 4 are for mandatory filings. Mainly in local GAAPs and 2 for GAAP and IFRS. Tax Returns: 5 projects, 3 mandatory and all in progress Statistics: 6 projects Security regulator: 1 established project for Mandatory filing in Spain (following IFRS), 2 in progress Other sectors: 9 projects

5 Why a XBRL Europe Organisation? Without being aware, Europe is a XBRL continent and huge amount of XBRL information is or will be circulating in Europe. But NO particular project exists for trans-national information, except for COREP/FINREP and with the IFRS taxonomy (just for listed companies). Such Projects WILL reduce the over costs of crossing boundaries (recalculations, translations, etc). XBRL technology allows exchanging information. Surely better with a unique Gaap in Europe. But to start at XBRL Europe we developed pan European harmonisation initiatives and for instance in the EU Business register WG -> Development of a common taxonomy between some EU Countries in order to: to retrieve common datas from national taxonomies present minimum common info across countries/languages

6 The Not for Profit Association XBRL Europe Objectives To foster the emergence of common XBRL projects between members in Europe and between European Countries to harmonize practices or to create common practices To develop liaison and dialogue with European level organisations and European Authorities (European Commission, European Parliament, European Central Bank, etc) to increase XBRL awareness To support the creation of new European XBRL jurisdictions within European Countries

12 Monnet FP 7 update Project (2,4 M) selected by European Commission in which XBRL Europe is involved Project about multilingual and ontological tools using XBRL for 3 years. XBRL Instance documents and Taxonomies will be used to test the possibibility to translate them immediately in locating the translated contexts in some centralised databases. XBRL Europe is part of a consortium involving research institutions like University of Galwayand companies like SAP. 3 persons of XBRL Europe are mentioned in the proposal (DoW – Description of Work) : Derek de Brandt, Thomas Verdin, Gilles Maguet)

14 Interoperability, European Institutions initiatives & XBRL Start: EP and Council launched Transparency directive 2004/109/EC in 2004 Access for investors to information (…) should be more organised at a Community level and then with Directive 2004/39/EC MiFID Directive about harmonised regulation for investment services in EU. Since 2005 CEBS supported the XBRL format in relation to COREP and FINREP reporting & published in 2009 workplan & priority activities (including developments of COREP & FINREP taxonomies) to reach with CEIOPS harmonised supervisory reporting by CESR has launched a CALL for EVIDENCE about XBRL, while the US SEC has mandated in the US use of XBRL to report listed companies financial statements. EC launched in 2009 Consultations papers: 1) 4th and 7th directives reforms following the burden reduction programme launched by DG ENTR and related to national financial statements simplification &I nteroperability; 2) about the de Larosière report. XBRL was mentioned as a language to be possibly used in the 1st consultation. XBRL Europe made recommendations in both for the use of XBRL as a tool for simplification, interoperability and Burden reduction.

15 Interoperability, European Institutions initiatives & XBRL EC proposed in October 2009 to reorganise the Financial supervision: European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB) as 'macro-prudential supervision', and European System of Financial Supervisors (ESFS) for the supervision of financial institutions ('micro-prudential supervision'), a network of national financial supervisors & the new European Supervisory Authorities, (transformation of CESR, CEBS & CEIOPS Committees), European Banking Authority (EBA), European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA), the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA). Common Technical standards are called upon in the founding documents. XBRL has a role to play to set up these standards with EBA, ESMA and EIOPA. EC published the results of the 1st consultation (4 th &7th directives). XBRL is largely positively mentioned in the answers. "The majority of respondents with an explicit opinion supported a common EU XBRL taxonomy. Strongest support came from preparers followed by public authorities
