2016 Draft XBRL Taxonomies

The proposed 2016 U.S. GAAP financial reporting taxonomy and related 'Release Notes' have been published for public comment by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and are available at http://www.fasb.org/jsp/FASB/Page/SectionPage%26cid=1176164335312. The public comment period will end on October 31, 2015. Comments on this taxonomy should be submitted directly into the FASB's Taxonomy Online Review and Comment System. The SEC staff encourages filers, investors, analysts, software service providers, and other interested parties to participate in this public review to continue to improve the process for creating and using XBRL structured financial statements.

The draft 2016 updates to SEC taxonomies are available at http://www.sec.gov/info/edgar/edgartaxonomies_d.shtml. Please provide comments on the draft 2016 updates to SEC taxonomies via https://www.sec.gov/forms/contact_dera using "Draft 2016 SEC Taxonomies" in the "General Subject Matter" section no later than October 31, 2015.

Upon completion of the public comment period and consideration of the feedback, the taxonomies will be subject to Commission approval. The availability for public comment of the proposed 2016 U.S. GAAP financial reporting taxonomy and the draft 2016 updates to SEC taxonomies does not indicate Commission approval of any potential regulatory changes related to the EDGAR Filer Manual. Please refer to the SEC's EDGAR webpage at http://www.sec.gov/info/edgar.shtml for updated information on when the Commission approves changes, if any, related to the EDGAR Filer Manual. If appropriate, transition guidance will be posted on the standard taxonomies page at http://www.sec.gov/info/edgar/edgartaxonomies.shtml.

Foreign private issuers that prepare their financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board are not required to submit to the Commission Interactive Data Files, as defined in Rule 11 of Regulation S-T, until the Commission specifies on its website a taxonomy for use by such foreign private issuers in preparing their Interactive Data Files. See The Center for Audit Quality, SEC No-Action Letter (Apr. 8, 2011) at http://www.sec.gov/divisions/corpfin/cf-noaction/2011/caq040811.htm.

The Commission staff is continuing to review taxonomies for use by foreign private issuers. The IFRS Foundation periodically publishes versions of the IFRS Taxonomy for public comment. The Commission staff encourages filers, investors, analysts, software service providers and other interested parties to participate in this public review to assist the IFRS Foundation in continuing to develop the IFRS Taxonomy. Information regarding the IFRS Taxonomy and links to versions of the taxonomy are available at http://www.ifrs.org/XBRL/Pages/XBRL.aspx. Comments on versions of the taxonomy should be submitted directly to the IFRS Foundation.
