This document describes the processes whereby entries may be added to, changed, or removed from the XBRL International Data Type Registry. The Data Type Registry is an online listing of data types that have been identified as potentially having wide utility. The Registry contains structured information about their purpose, usage and any intended impact on XBRL instance validation.

REC DTR release
XBRL provides a set of standard data types that may appear in XBRL schemas. These include those specified in [XBRL 2.1], [DIMENSIONS] and any additional modules that are XBRL Recommendations. As XBRL applications emerge, new, non-standard data types having common and useful semantics are being proposed. The goal of the XBRL Data Type Registry (DTR) is to be a public, online data set that documents these non-standard data types and their usage. Additions and other changes to the DTR, like other XBRL International work products, are processed through a series of steps detailed in this document. The goal is to maximise the utility and longevity of the new data types and the taxonomies that use them.
The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL, in this specification, are to be interpreted as described in [IETF RFC 2119].
abstract element, bind, concept, concrete element, context, Discoverable Taxonomy Set (DTS), duplicate items, duplicate tuples, element, entity, equal, essence concept, fact, instance, item, least common ancestor, linkbase, period, taxonomy, tuple, unit, taxonomy schema, child, parent, sibling, grandparent, uncle, ancestor, XBRL instance, c-equal, p-equal, s-equal, u-equal, v-equal, x-equal, minimally conforming XBRL processor, fully conforming XBRL processor and any other terms not specifically defined elsewhere in this document but which are used and defined in the XBRL 2.1 specification. are as defined by [XBRL 2.1] .
XSB refers to the XBRL International Standards Board .
The official language of XBRL International's own work products is English and the preferred spelling convention is UK English.
All documentation supporting a registry entry MUST be provided in English, and MAY be provided in additional languages.
Comments which are informative, but not essential to the understanding of the point at hand, are provided in footnotes. All footnotes are non-normative.
When referring to a specific element, it will be identified by
its namespace prefix and local name. For example, the root element
of a versioning report would be referred to as
Attributes are also identified by their local name and, where
appropriate, their namespace prefix. Attributes are
distinguished from elements by prefixing them by an

When referring to any attribute, so long as it has a specific
namespace, the local name is replaced by an asterisk (

This document defines the process by which an entry is added to the DTR.
Once a data type has been published at REC status, it may only be modified by errata corrections to address defects in the current definition. Any such changes MUST be approved by the DTRAM and XSB and will be included in the next release of the DTR.
A withdrawn datatype will be excluded from all subsequent DTR releases.
In order to make changes to the registry more manageable for implementers, and to avoid making "in place" changes to published schemas, changes to data types in the DTR are grouped into public releases. Public releases are one of two types:
