On 5 December 2007, the US Securities and Exchange Commission released the XBRL US GAAP taxonomy for public comment.

The taxonomy is a collection of computer 'tags' that can be applied to financial data included in SEC filings to make the data interactive and more useful to investors. The public comment period concludes 4 April 2008. Some time in 2008, the SEC is likely to propose a rule that would require certain registrants to incorporate interactive data into future SEC filings. We have posted the 10 December 2007 edition of the Heads Up Newsletter (PDF 111k) from Deloitte & Touche LLP (United States), which describes the US GAAP XBRL taxonomy.
