SEC Interactive Data Test Suite Update 35-160213
Feb. 23, 2016
The interactive data test suite located at http://www.sec.gov/spotlight/xbrl/interactive_data_test_suite.shtml has been updated. For a summary of changes, see the change log on the last page of the summary file (http://www.sec.gov/info/edgar/ednews/efmtest/efmtest-35-160213.pdf). The test suite has been updated to reference the 2016 U.S. GAAP, Countries, Currencies, and Exchanges taxonomies, and to add a test case related to the use of the tilde character.
Comments on the test suite may be submitted via email to StructuredData@sec.gov indicating “Interactive Data Test Suite” in the subject field. The purpose of the public test suite is to assist developers of software that must validate Interactive Data prior to its submission to EDGAR. The test suite consists of many small Interactive Data instances, schemas, and linkbases that are categorized as to whether they violate a validation check, and if so, what validation check they violate and whether that would result in a warning or in an error that would cause the Interactive Data to be rejected.
This update to the test suite 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.
