Release change logs:

Using DQC Rules with Arelle's GUI:

  1. download and extract the contents of the .zip or tar.gz above to your computer
  2. copy the xule folder/files to the corresponding Arelle/plugin folder on your computer
  3. initialize the plugin in Arelle and confirm the DQC version is 3.0.22495 or higher
  4. validate filings with the approved DQC Rules; as of this release, users can check change ruleset map options from the Tools >> DQC menu of Arelle's GUI

Command line users: refer to 'Updating the ruleset map for future releases of DQC rule' on Managing Rulesets for instructions.

The DQC plugin is written in python-based syntax (called xule) using the open source version of the SEC's EDGAR Renderer/Previewer - Arelle as an XBRL processor on a local computer or server. The DQC plugin reads a specified ruleset and the assertions defined in the ruleset are evaluated against an XBRL instance, a taxonomy or an extension taxonomy, creating validation messages.

The new and revised rules in this release were available for comment through May 7, 2018.
The effective date for this release is filings submitted after June 29, 2018.
