The webinar served as an introduction to the published first edition of the XBRL Taxonomy Development Handbook (TDH), a detailed guide that provides a reference for XBRL taxonomy development, implementation, and maintenance. The TDH serves as the first comprehensive source of information and guidance pertaining to XBRL taxonomydevelopment, covering topics ranging from data modeling and structure to freely available XBRL taxonomy development tools to long-term taxonomy governance. The handbook also includes templates for key XBRL documentation, including a white paper, an XBRL overview, a taxonomy guide, and guides for preparers and data consumers. The TDH was developed by the XBRL US Domain Steering Committee and has now been released in its first edition following a 90-day public review period that ended on February 21, 2020.
