FFIEC Call Report Modernization Project - CDR Interchange Specification Version 1.02

1. Introduction

The Federal Financial Institution Examination Council (FFIEC) Central Data Repository (CDR) is the system that will be used by the Federal Reserve Board (FRB), Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) to collect, validate and store the quarterly Call Report data of banks and potentially other regulatory reports in the future. The CDR system, currently under development, requires that data be submitted in the form of XBRL instances. XBRL (Extensible Business Reporting Language) is an open, XML-based framework for expressing metadata (taxonomies) and data (instances) for business reporting. All the metadata and data in the CDR system uses the XBRL 2.1 specification [XBRL]. This document assumes some familiarity with the XBRL 2.1 specification.

1.1 Purpose
The purpose of this document is to describe the syntax and semantics of XBRL taxonomies and linkbases that will be generated in support the CDR system. In addition, the document also describes the syntax of the instance documents that are to be submitted to the CDR system.

1.3 Overview
The document is organized under the following sections

  1. Call Report Taxonomy Framework: This section describes various components of a Call Report Taxonomy Framework. A high level Architecture is shown in Figure 1. Call Report taxonomy framework is separated into two parts - Report taxonomy and Reportability taxonomy.
  2. Call Report Instance Document Specification: This section describes components of a FFIEC instance document. Instance documents contain context and unit elements that provide additional information needed to interpret the facts reported by an institution.
  3. Sample Taxonomies and Instance Document: Lists various addendum documents containing taxonomies samples and instance document example.
