Reporting release 5 December 2019 – 28/2019

New version of FIN-FSA’s Reporting Application downloadable from Jakelu Distribution Service | EBA EIOPA ESMA

FIN-FSA’s Reporting Application (XBRL/XML) 18.1.5 and new Excel workbooks are now available for download in the Jakelu Distribution Service. Minor errors in the use of the application have been corrected in the new version of the Reporting Application.

The system requirements for FIN-FSA’s Reporting Application have been updated. The workstation must have as its operating system Windows 10 covered by general support as well as Excel 2013 or 2016. The Reporting Application and its workbooks may also work on other versions of Windows and Excel. These are not, however, covered by the support provided by FIN-FSA.

Before the Reporting Application can be installed, the following components must be installed in the workstation:

EBA – credit institutions, investment firms, fund management companies, authorised alternative investment fund managers: new DPM 2.9.1

  • The Reporting Application takes into account taxonomy changes of the DPM version update (2.9.1) related to EBA’s data collections.
  • At this stage, the workbooks of SBP CR and SBP RM modules will be published for EBA’s DPM 2.9.1. Entry into force:
    • SBP CR module as from the reference date 31 December 2019
    • SBP RM module as from the reference date 1 January 2020
  • The Reporting Application’s workbooks of other EBA’s data collection modules (DPM 2.9.1) will be published in stages during 2020. Entry into force:
    • COREP OF, COREP LE and COREP LR modules as from the reference date 31 March 2020

  • Further information of the DPM 2.9.1 version:
  • The Reporting Application’s workbooks take into account EBA’s updated validation rules (latest on 11th of November 2019).

EIOPA – life and non-life insurance companies, institutions for occupational retirement provision: workbooks do not contain EIOPA’s validation rules

  • The workbooks of Solvency II and Pension Fund modules do not contain EIOPA’s validation rules related to the content of the report.
    • It is not technically possible to implement all the checks in the Reporting Application. Particularly in EIOPA’s data collections, there have been differences between the validation feedback of the Reporting Application’s workbooks and the automatic feedback of FIN-FSA’s reporting environment. This has resulted in additional clarification work for reporters and FIN-FSA.
    • The workbooks contain validation checks on the accuracy of the report file. The validation checks are performed on the General Information sheet, reported templates, key fields, option list values, mandatory reported cells, and identifier checks (e.g. LEI code, ISIN code). In addition, the workbooks contain formula cells based on EIOPA’s validation rules.
    • Reporters may submit their reports to FIN-FSA’s testing environment for validation before submitting the official report to FIN-FSA, see below for further information.

Solvency II – life and non-life insurance companies: new DPM 2.4.0

  • The Reporting Application takes into account taxonomy changes of the DPM version update (2.4.0) related to the Solvency II data collection.
  • The DPM 2.4.0 version will be used in reporting starting from reference date 31 December 2019.
  • Solo- and group-level quarterly and annual modules (incl. Financial Stability modules) as well as the Technical Entry Point (TEP) reporting module, which are intended for reporting in special cases, are downloadable.
  • The Reporting Application does not support Public Disclosure modules (APS and APG) included in taxonomy 2.4.0, which are intended to facilitate the production of data for disclosure on company websites (SFCR quantitative tables). They are not intended to be used to report data to the supervisors or EIOPA.
  • Further information of the DPM 2.4.0 version:
  • Updates to EIOPA’s validation rules have been taken into account in the formula cells of the Reporting Application’s workbooks (latest on 4th of November 2019).
  • The Official Journal of the European Union translations have not been taken into account in the workbooks of the Reporting Application. The updated workbooks will be published after the publication of the Official Journal.

  • There have been no changes to the content of the AIFMD data collection.
  • FIN-FSA recommends using the latest version of the Reporting Application in reporting.

EBA, EIOPA, ESMA – use of testing environment recommended

It is not technically possible to implement all the checks into the Reporting Application. Reporters may submit their reports to FIN-FSA’s testing environment for validation before submitting the official report to FIN-FSA. The reporter’s testing environment is similar to FIN-FSA's production environment except that in the testing environment, acceptance testing is done before the changes are implemented into the production environment. For this reason, the feedback message received from the testing environment may not be identical with the feedback message received from the production environment. The email address of the testing environment is TK_rahoitus(at)bof.fi. We hope that reporters will make extensive use of the testing environment.

FIN-FSA welcomes feedback relating to FIN-FSA’s Reporting Application as well as feedback and development wishes relating to the reporters’ testing environment.
