  • Global Common Data Taxonomies August 15, 2005
    The XBRL International Global Common Data (GCD) taxonomies cover a range of information commonly used in business reporting. This includes entity information (such as names, identifying codes, operational and legal status, contacts, websites, officers, third party agents ), instance doc information (version, unique identifiers, authors, contacts, revision history), reporting periods (including standard financial reporting dates) and general purpose information (including countries, languages, exchanges, currencies and ways of representing addresses and phone numbers). The GCD is expected to be an important building block in many jurisdictional and other taxonomies.
