Pre-program 10:30-11:30 Deep dive to ESEF workshop, Niels-Peter Rønmos, Xtelligent-data

Within a few years, XBRL reports from ESEF-fillers will be validated to a much greater extent than the case is today. This will be a part of the upcoming introduction of European Single Access Point (ESAP).

In this workshop, we will review a number of Finnish ESEF reports published via the Finnish OAM. The focus will be on some of the automatic validation and checks to be expected as a part of the implementation of ESAP. The validations range from compliance with the XBRL specifications, Formula validation rules, XBRL-calculations and rules from ESMA filling manual.

The workshop wil be conducted by Niels-Peter Rønmos, Xtelligent Data ApS, from Denmark. Niels-Peter has participated in the Danish XBRL mandate since 2010 in various roles and has maintained the Danish taxonomy and the Danish IFRS taxonomy for more than 10 years.

Companies are welcome to propose their own XBRL-report for the workshop by sending a link to the publication, as reported on oam.fi
