XBRL News for Filers – SEC Enforcing Use of Units Registry Important WEBCAST

Effective immediately, the SEC is enforcing the requirement that all filers use the XBRL International Units Registry (http://xbrl.org/units-registry).

What does this mean to filers?

If you are using an element with a datatype that is defined in the Units Registry, you must use one of the units associated with that datatype in the units registry in your filing. If you use a unit that does not match the datatype in the units registry, your XBRL submission will be rejected by the EDGAR system. This applies to all filings that are created using the 2012 US GAAP Taxonomy and of course, will apply to the 2013 as well.

To ensure that filers understand how this works, XBRL US will hold a 30 minute webinar on Tuesday, February 19 at 1:00 PM ET to walk you through how to use the Units Registry.

To attend the live webinar, use this link: https://www.livemeeting.com/cc/xbrl/meet/7597PP

We’ll also record and post the session replay to the XBRL US Web site at http://xbrl.us/replay.
