2015 US GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy

The 2015 U.S. Financial Reporting Taxonomy (Taxonomy) contains updates for accounting standards and other improvements since the 2014 Taxonomy as used by issuers filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Financial Accounting Standards Board issued proposed improvements to the taxonomy in the fall of 2014, allowing users of the taxonomy to provide feedback on the updates and the opportunity to become familiar with and to incorporate new element names for their filings. We encourage users to read the release notes and other guidance and supporting materials provided below which contain details of the changes.

Guidance and Supporting Documents include: A view of the 2014 SEC Document and Entity Information (DEI) Taxonomy is provided for user convenience. Please note that there have been no changes in the SEC DEI Taxonomy since 2014. Therefore the 2014 DEI Taxonomy should be used in conjunction with the 2014 and 2015 US GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomies.
