XBRL News about consultations, verifications and narrations

Here are the three most relevant developments in the world of structured reporting we became aware of in the course of last week. 

1  Support and suggestions for digital climate reporting at the SEC

2  Comprehensive report verification at last? GLEIF deploys vLEI digital identifier …

The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) marked a milestone this week with the first ever use of the verifiable Legal Entity Identifier (vLEI), in the signing of its 2021 annual report. The vLEI is a digitally trusted version of the existing LEI, designed to meet “an urgent, unmet need for automated digital verification of the legal identities of businesses everywhere.”

The vLEI would be an important part of a seamless digital reporting / analysis value chain. 

3  Granular narrative tags give better, faster insights …
