Filing Indicators Proposed
The XBRL Standards Board has approved a Proposed Recommendation release of the Filing Indicators specification. Filing Indicators are a mechanism used by some XBRL filing systems to enable filers to explicitly record which sections (or templates) within a report they have completed. This new XBRL Specification turns Filing Indicators into an open standard that is compatible with the Open Information Model — a strategic initiative that seeks to modernise and simplify XBRL.
By making Filing Indicators compatible with the OIM, it becomes possible to use them in new OIM-based formats such as xBRL-CSV, which enables efficient collection of large amounts of granular data.
