  10. 10. 11:15 Regulation in the 21st Century: From Prescription to Collaborative Supervision Priscilla Rabb Ayers — Global Regulatory Executive, IBM Financial Services The convergence of technological change and globalisation, impacted by significant political and economic crises, has catalysed a major transformation of the regulatory process and the roles of the regulator and regulated. The stovepiped prescriptive regulatory regimes of the Industrial Age have proven inadequate to the challenges of the Information Age, and new regulatory paradigm is emerging. Emblematic of this new paradigm is the ascendancy of Risk-Based Supervision (RBS) coupled with senior management accountability. The focus of RBS is on the quality of internal risk management and compliance processes, and its success requires transparency and effective collaboration between the regulatory authorities and the regulated entities. The realisation of the global economy and the growth of multinational organisations heightens the need for a standard language for regulatory reporting, effective RBS, and enterprise risk and compliance regimes. XBRL is ideally suited to responding to that need and is rapidly becoming the standard. 11:45 Panel Discussion: Why you should be interested in XBRL Moderator: Mike Wills — Global Lead Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers • How XBRL can be leveraged to enhance the corporate reporting process for preparers • Discussion of the range of benefits to preparers with respect to external and internal reporting processes; the related corporate reporting control environment and key implementation considerations • Specific early stage implementation considerations such as priorities areas, process impacts, tooling and taxonomy considerations 12:25 Lunch 13:25 US SEC — Initiative to Explore XBRL and Other Data Tagging Eric Schuppenhauer — Senior Advisor to the Chief Accountant, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Brigette Lippmann — Attorney, Corporation Finance Division, U.S. SEC & Exchange Commission As part of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) initiative to improve the filing, information collection and disclosure process, it is seeking to determine the impact and usefulness of tagged data generally, and more specifically the adequacy and efficacy of XBRL as a format for reporting financial information. This presentation will discuss the SEC Concept Release and Proposed Rule. 13:55 XBRL: chances and challenges in financial reporting Harm-Jan van Berg — Director General of the Tax & Customs Administration, Netherlands • XBRL can change the way government and enterprises exchange information • To substantially reduce the administrative burden of entrepre- neurs XBRL should be used within the whole information chain 9
