Reporting Standard maintains a local Catalog of XBRL Taxonomies located on the Internet on official locations. We will show on this post how to easily find any taxonomy on our catalog.

By Standard, Taxonomy and Linkbase files published in Official locations should not change. Also by standard, taxonomies are compatible with other existing official schemas from the XBRL Consortium and other taxonomies commonly used.

The Taxonomy Catalog serves to accelerate loading files that refers to other files published on the Internet without having to read the files from the Internet every time. Some taxonomies in the taxonomy Catalog also has a wizard that allows our users to select the taxonomy content wihout having to worry about the official locations of the taxonomy files.

Please contact Reporting Standard if you want your taxonomy to be incorporated into the XBRL Taxonomy Catalog. Our product updates incorporates new releases of the taxonomy catalog with changes to the schemas and new taxonomies published.
