Data Point Model and XBRL

Please subscribe to this RSS feed to receive updates when the content of this page is updated. 


EIOPA implemented XBRL as the standard for reporting data submission between EIOPA and national competent authorities following a decision of the Board of Supervisors on Collection of Information by EIOPA. The following products have been developed by EIOPA: 

  • Data Point Model (DPM): a structured representation of the data, identifying all the business concepts and its relations, as well as validation rules. The DPM contains all the relevant technical specifications necessary for developing an IT reporting solution, independent from the technical format. It is composed by the  Annotated templates for the Solvency II and DPM Dictionary and the annotated templates for the Pensions Funds and the DPM Dictionary.
  • XBRL Taxonomies and related artefacts (filing rules, documentation, etc.): implementing the data items, business concepts, relations and validation rules described by the Data Point Model in the technical format of XBRL. The XBRL standard and software solutions are implemented by external parties (XBRL International and software vendors) to provide the software solutions to meet the above defined requirements. A list of available software here (incomplete).
  • List of known issues: describes issues and provides solutions to be taken into account during the technical implementation. Mainly corrections in relation to the DPM and XBRL taxonomies.
  • List of Validations: contains the list of validations to be fulfilled by the reports. The list is updated according to the Governance of Taxonomies releases and amended following a public consultation. In this webpage EIOPA makes available and regularly update the list of validations for the Solvency II reporting (updated 16/07/2018) and by end of August will make available the DRAFT list of validations for Pension Funds reporting.
  • The Taxonomy licence 

XBRL Taxonomy Releases

For planning purposes of the IT implementation, please refer to The Governance of Taxonomy Releases, schedule for 2018 (updated 16/07/2018) and the Taxonomy Roadmap (to be updated in the coming weeks).

As a general rule one taxonomy release per year is planned and the EIOPA aims to minimise the number of taxonomy publications. It is expected that in most of the years only one release will occur. However, in extraordinary circumstances, for example in years with a high degree of business changes or when a released taxonomy contains serious technical defects, a second, purely corrective release may be needed. As a precautionary measure, this potential release is included in the yearly schedule to aid planning.






Pension Funds Taxonomy schedule

EIOPA has published on 16 July 2018 the first Public Working Draft (PWD) of the taxonomy including EIOPA and ECB Pension Funds reporting requirements. By 31 August 2018 a second public working draft will be published correcting the detected issues and including all the expected business validations (taxonomy assertions).

EIOPA aims to receive and process feedback about the PWD Pension Funds Taxonomy until the 10 October 2018. By 1 November 2018 EIOPA plans to publish the final Pension Funds final 2.3.0 taxonomy to be used by reporting entities from the 31/09/2019 reference date.
