XBRL US member volunteers are the driving force helping to set the strategic direction of the organization. All members have the opportunity to join one of the primary steering committees. Each steering committee may also establish working groups for a specific activity.

Communications Steering Committee (CSC)

With a mission of facilitating the adoption and widespread use of XBRL by the business reporting supply chain, the CSC engages members, government and the public at large to increase the awareness of the benefits of using XBRL data and build community among a diverse audience. Current workstreams include identifying new consumers of XBRL data and establishing proof of XBRL benefits.

The CSC meets the last Wednesday of the month at Noon ET. Send a note to membership@xbrl.us to learn more & participate in upcoming meetings.

Members include:

Data Quality Commitee (DQC)

The Committee is responsible for developing guidance and validation rules that can prevent or detect inconsistencies or errors in XBRL data filed with the SEC. Working within its Guiding Principles for Element Selection, the Committee focuses on data quality issues that adversely affect data consumption and analysis and prioritizes issues based on input from users.

Approximate Public Exposure Periods for DQC Rules and Guidance
  • May 1- June 15
  • August 1- September 15
  • November 1- December 15
  • Generally, rules are considered for approval within 45 days of Public Exposure, and effective within 90 days of approval.

    The Committee provides an open collaborative process with stakeholders through exposure of its proposed guidance and validation rules for public comment. Members of the Committee include representatives from software providers, data aggregators, institutional investors, the accounting profession and academia. To contact the Data Quality Committee email DQC@xbrl.us.

    The Committee’s key activities include:

    • Providing progress updates to SEC staff and input to FASB staff to aid in simplifying and improving the US GAAP Taxonomy.
