Regulatory & Legislative News
On September 25, as part of the SEC’s Disclosure Effectiveness Initiative (which involves staff review of disclosure requirements as well as the presentation and delivery of the disclosures), the SEC published a Request for Comment on Regulation S-X which includes a proposal that disclosures about entities other than a registrant be made in XBRL format.
The 60-day comment period is intended to allow users of the Taxonomy to provide feedback on the taxonomy and to afford SEC filers, service providers, software vendors, and other interested parties the opportunity to become familiar with and suggest revisions to the taxonomy, including incorporating new elements for current filings.
