2021-10-19 DNB has started the optimization of the validation process of XBRL reports
DNB has started a process to optimize the validation of XBRL reports via the DLR. The purpose of this is to provide the reporting institutions faster feedback on the validation results.
As a first step, during a period of a month, an XML file will also be provided in the DLR in addition to the validation report in Excel and the separate log files with notifications on validation rules and filing rules. The XML file serves as a replacement for the log files and will contain all notifications on validation rules and filing rules. This period will start on Friday evening October 22 and last until November 23. Afterwards, the separate log files with the notifications on validation will no longer be offered in the DLR, so that the validation process can be completed more quickly. The validation report in Excel and the XML file containing all notifications on validation results will remain available. The existing log files for the Excel to XBRL conversion and the checks on period, reporter and entry point remain unchanged and are also available after this period.
For the digital auditor's report no validation report in DLR is available in Excel but only log files containing the notifications on validation rules and technical validations. With effect from 22 October, both an XML file and a txt file containing all validation results will be made available in the DLR for the validation of the auditor's report. The separate log files will no longer be offered in the DLR after the end of this period. The information about the results of the validation can then be found in the XML file and txt file.
