    ESMA Updates Manual for European Single Electronic Format in EU

    July 12, 2019

    ESMA updated the reporting manual for European Single Electronic Format (ESEF). Through this manual, ESMA intends to assist issuers and software vendors in creating Inline eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) documents that are compliant with the regulatory technical standards on ESEF. The manual provides guidance on issues commonly encountered when generating Inline XBRL instance documents in compliance with the ESEF regulation. The manual is relevant for all market participants involved in the implementation of the requirements set out in the ESEF regulation and in particular in the first-time preparation of IFRS consolidated financial statements in Inline XBRL.

    The guidelines defined in this manual are intended to facilitate the analysis and comparison of the XBRL data contained in Inline XBRL documents by computer applications and human readers. The manual provides guidance on the expected syntax and structure of Inline XBRL documents and issuers’ XBRL extension taxonomies. It contains parts that are of a highly technical nature and are intended for a technical audience. It is assumed that the reader has a working knowledge of the XBRL 2.1, Inline XBRL 1.0, and the XBRL Dimensions 1.0 Specifications; is familiar with the IFRS Taxonomy; and has a basic understanding of XML, Namespaces, and XML Schema. 

    ESMA had originally published this manual in December 2017. Following feedback from market participants, ESMA decided to publish a revised version of the manual to expand existing guidance and update the guidance included in the original publication. ESMA will continue to monitor relevant markets developments and gather feedback on issues frequently encountered. Where relevant and/or necessary, ESMA will provide further guidance to the public.

    The regulatory technical standards on ESEF, which were published on May 2019 in the Official Journal of the European Union, specify that all issuers that are subject to the requirements in the Transparency Directive to make public Annual Financial Reports shall prepare annual financial reports in the Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML) format. Where an issuer prepares IFRS consolidated financial statements, it shall mark up these IFRS consolidated financial statements using the XBRL markup language. The markups shall be embedded in the XHTML document version of the annual financial report using the Inline XBRL format.
