Second Public Working Draft of the Abstract Model Released

(15 June 2012) – XBRL International (XII) today released the second public working draft of its Abstract Model. The abstract model has been developed as a means of establishing a common framework for communicating and understanding the XBRL technology. The abstract model provides a conceptual framework for understanding XBRL and gives developers a strong foundation for implementing XBRL solutions.

The release of a public working draft is a key opportunity for XII members, Jurisdictions and other stakeholders around the world to influence the development of XBRL. The second PWD of the Abstract Model may be found at:

The development of the XII Abstract Model is led by the Abstract Modelling Task Force and includes use case diagrams, class diagrams, object diagrams, and sequence diagrams. It is a key component of Preserve Promote Participate, the strategic core vision developed by the XBRL Standards Board to continue the momentum of the XBRL standard.
