PROPOSED 2018 SEC Reporting Taxonomy

Proposed 2018 SEC Reporting Taxonomy

Deadline to submit written comments was October 31, 2017.

The proposed 2018 SEC Reporting Taxonomy (SRT) contains elements moved from the GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy. The SRT includes elements to meet SEC requirements for financial schedules required by the SEC, condensed consolidating financial information for guarantors, and disclosures about oil and gas producing activities. The SRT also includes dimensional elements whose underlying recognition and measurement are not to GAAP but are elements used by GAAP filers.

Users should read the release notes and other guidance and supporting materials provided below. All comments are tracked and reviewed for inclusion in the final 2018 SRT release. Comments are acknowledged when received but it is not possible to respond directly to individual comments. Individuals providing comments on the SRT are required to register with a “user name” and email address. Please note that all comments will be visible to other registered users. Guidance for using the SRT viewer/commenting tool is provided here.

Guidance and Supporting Documents include: A view of the draft SEC Document and Entity Information (DEI) Taxonomy is provided for user convenience. The draft DEI Taxonomy should be used in conjunction with the proposed 2018 SRT.
