Reporting taxonomy

The ECB has published a second version of the taxonomy to be used by national competent authorities when submitting supervisory financial reporting data points (SFRDP) to the ECB, in accordance with the Regulations on supervisory reporting – namely the SFRDP 2.0.0.0 taxonomy package.

The taxonomy provides a uniform technical format for data collection, defining the data items, business concepts, relations, visualisations and validation rules. It uses “eXtensible Business Reporting Language” (XBRL).
