Postponed: Implementing ESEF

This event has been postponed, we will update this page as soon as a new date is found.

The European Single Electronic Format requirements are coming into force. This event is designed to bring key stakeholders together for a lively debate to cover the issues around the preparation of ESEF files and providing assurance on their compliance. The discussion will embrace both regulatory aspects and practical implications.

This important step in digital reporting offers great opportunities for the transparency of the EU market. There are however challenges to an efficient implementation. Issuers, investors, auditors, standard setters, policy makers and regulators are expected to join.
