Our purpose is to improve the accountability and transparency of business performance globally, by providing the open data exchange standard for business performance.

The XBRL Standards are freely licensed. We operate in the public interest as a not-for-profit global consortium. We are a member supported organisation, with dedicated volunteers from all over the world offering their time and expertise to develop specifications to support the collection, sharing and use of structured data for data reporting and analysis.

See why XBRL is being used in over 60 countries to help governments, firms and investors make better business decisions.

XII also identifies best practices and provides implementation guidance for our members and hosts an annual international conference.
