SEC Interactive Data Test Suite Update 47-180610

The interactive data test suite located at has been updated. For a summary of changes, see the change log on the last page of the summary file ( The test suite has been updated to include tests that use the 2018 IFRS taxonomy. The test suite has also been updated to remove references to the 2016 US GAAP, 2013 Document and Entity Information (DEI), 2009 DEI, 2016 Exchanges (EXCH), and 2010 Risk-Return taxonomies.

Comments on the test suite may be submitted via email to indicating “Interactive Data Test Suite” in the subject field. The purpose of the public test suite is to assist filers using software to 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 for updated information on when the Commission approves changes, if any, related to the EDGAR Filer Manual.
