XBRL


Three federal banking agencies have launched an improved Web site that allows faster access to banks’ quarterly Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report) data. The Central Data Repository (CDR) at https://cdr.ffiec.gov/public , established by the Federal Reserve, the FDIC and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, now makes important Call Report data available in PDF, regular text or XBRL.

The elimination of several manual update processes is expected to make the Web site more cost-efficient. Call Report data also will be available sooner on the CDR Web site. Most banks are required to submit Call Report data within 30 calendar days of the close of each calendar quarter. Call Report data for individual banks will be available soon after banks submit it, starting about 15 days after the close of each calendar quarter.
