Complete and Continuous Support of the XBRL Standards


XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) is the global standard for exchanging business information. It is based upon the XML syntax, but goes further by capturing the definition of individual reporting concepts as well as the relationships between them and other semantic meaning, such as formulas. The XBRL Specification is developed and published by XBRL International, Inc. (XII).

UBPartner is a key contributor to the XBRL community and is a direct member of XBRL Europe. We play an active role in many XBRL groups, such as Eurofiling, XBRL standard working groups and XBRL France. UBPartner’s Steve Berdah is currently acting as Technical Director of XBRL France.

The XBRL standard is continually changing to meet the developing set of use cases and demands. UBPartner monitors all of these developments and ensures that its software is fully conformant with the latest standards, and that its customers and partners are kept up to date with the latest developments.

The original UBmatrix organisation was a founding member of XBRL International. How XBRL was developed from an original idea by early pioneers such as Charlie Hoffman, Herm Fisher, Rene van Egmond (all original UBmatrix employees) and many others to the worldwide standard for business information exchange is also a short history of UBPartner's background..
