The Linkbacks Working Group is excited to announce that the final version of the RIXML Investment Research Linkback Technical Implementation Guide v1.0 is now available.

Embargoes, entitlements, and other business-side topics are out of scope for this document; however, we have noted the need for these issues to be discussed during a linkback implementation project.
