Altova is a member of XBRL.US and has recently joined the XBRL US Center for Data Quality to support the Data Quality Committee’s initiative to address the public’s concerns about the quality and usability of XBRL financial data filed with the SEC.
As such, we are pleased to announce that we have just released a new set of EDGAR Tools for RaptorXML+XBRL Server on GitHub. These new Python scripts for RaptorXML+XBRL Server now support validation against the new Edgar Filer Manual (EFM) version 35, as well as implementing all the Approved DQC Guidance and Validation Rules from XBRL.US.
Altova has worked with XBRL.US to ensure that our implementation correctly completes the entire DQC testsuite, and we are happy to report that running the entire test suite with RaptorXML+XBRL Server takes a little less than 9 minutes on a quad-core i7 machine, compared to the open-source reference implementation that takes over 2 hours on the same computer.
At the same time we have implemented the European Banking Authority EBA XBRL Filing Rules 4.1 and are pleased to also release the corresponding eba-tools Python scripts for RaptorXML+XBRL Server on GitHub.
