XBRL US Data Quality Committee Solicits Input on 7th Ruleset and Guidance for SEC Filers


Issuers and other stakeholders are invited to test the rules and
comment by September 10, 2018.

The XBRL US Data Quality Committee (DQC) has published its seventh set
of Data Quality Rules for a public review and comment period to end
September 10, 2018. DQC rules and guidance, which are freely available,
are designed to be used by issuers to identify and correct errors in
their SEC filings. The DQC, which is funded through the Center for Data
Quality, is responsible for developing guidance and validation rules
that can prevent or detect inconsistencies or errors in XBRL data filed
with the SEC, and focuses on data quality issues that adversely affect
data analysis.

Twelve new rules are included in the seventh ruleset, covering tagging
under the new revenue recognition standard, and potential problem areas
with tagging pension data.

Rules and guidance developed by the DQC are free and publicly available.
Issuers, vendors, analysts, and investors can test out the draft rules
and provide comments related to the rules through the public review

The DQC has scheduled a webinar on August 29 to review the rules and
guidance for Ruleset 7. Register for this free, one-hour webinar:
