Eumedion supports the establishment of a European Single Access Point

News · 03-03-2021

Financial and non-financial information of listed companies should as soon as possible be made available in a centralised European database. This publicly accessible database will support institutional investors in gathering and processing relevant information on investee companies, as Eumedion writes today in its response to the European Commission’s consultation on the establishment of a European Single Access Point (ESAP).

Essential to the success of this database is a large coverage of structured data. It is therefore of crucial importance that also non-financial information is digitally tagged and filed in a uniform manner. Of particular importance to institutional investors is furthermore the alignment of company filings in ESAP with reporting requirements such as those stemming from the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation and the Taxonomy Regulation. To ensure a speedy start to the ESAP, Eumedion suggests the European Commission limits the scope of the ESAP to both financial and non-financial information that listed entities are required to make public due to the fact they have, or aim to list, securities on a European regulated market.
