DQC validations available on Wdesk: immediately
On Nov. 18, the Data Quality Committee (DQC) approved the first set of validation rules following the initial public comment period. These rules were effective beginning Jan. 1, 2016. Workiva is pleased to announce that all DQC validations are available within Wdesk. Filers may begin reviewing their structured data immediately.
The first set of validation rules from the DQC covers common errors in XBRL that impact data consumers. The rules identify potential errors, such as improper relationships between elements, incorrect dates, and incorrect usage of signs covering approximately 2,400 XBRL US GAAP Taxonomy concepts.
