Data standards for interconnected Public Administrations.
“Use data standards or develop our data model from scratch?” This is a common decision information architects have to take. Data standards are key building blocks for information systems development. Practice is showing, however, that public administrations are often reluctant to adopt data standards that have not been developed by or for them in the first place.

ESMA consults on the European Single Electronic Format

ESMA LogoThe European Securities and Markets Authority today launches its public consultation on its regulatory technical standards on the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF).

The consultation closes on 18 January  2016.

The amended Transparency Directive requires issuers listed on regulated markets to prepare their annual financial reports (AFR) in an ESEF from 1 January 2020, with the objectives of making submission easier for issuers and facilitating accessibility, analysis and comparability for investors and regulators. This consultation paper includes an assessment of current electronic reporting and explores ways forward with regard to the establishment of an ESEF.

In particular, ESMA seeks views on its preliminary cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and the proposals that the AFR should be published in PDF format with, in addition, IFRS consolidated financial statements reported as structured electronic data in XBRL or iXBRL.
