On March 11, 2019, the SEC EDGAR system was upgraded to Release 19.1 and now supports the 2019 U.S. GAAP, 2019 SEC Reporting (SRT), 2019 Currencies (Currency), and 2019 Exchanges (EXCH) taxonomies. The 2019 U.S. GAAP financial reporting taxonomy and the 2019 SEC Reporting Taxonomy reflect the same taxonomies that FASB made available on its website on December 18, 2018. The 2019 Currency and 2019 EXCH taxonomies reflect the same taxonomies the staff posted for public comment on November 30, 2018.  Refer to the Release Notes for SEC Taxonomies 2019 for details of the changes ( SEC staff indicated that they do not anticipate removing the 2017 U.S. GAAP, 2016 Currency, or 2017 EXCH taxonomies occur before June 2019.

See a complete listing of supported standard taxonomies.

SEC staff  suggests that filers consider transitioning to the 2019 taxonomies for the earliest reporting period that ends after March 11, 2019, but not for reporting periods that end before March 11, 2019.
