Extensible Enumerations 2.0 Specification achieves Recommended Status

Posted on March 16, 2020 by Editor

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.
