Extensible Enumerations 2.0 Specification achieves Recommended Status
This week the XBRL Board of Directors has approved the progression to recommendation status of an important new specification: the Extensible Enumerations Specification (EE).
Version 2 of the Extensible Enumerations specification provides improved support for reporting values that are taken from a prescribed list, such as a list of countries. The use of Extensible Enumerations ensures that such values are reported consistently, thereby improving data quality. Extensible Enumerations provides XBRL’s taxonomy-based data modelling features, including multi-language labelling of enumerated values.
The new specification can be downloaded from the specification site. Thanks to all of our contributors that have worked on our specifications.
