Lombard Risk Offers Free XBRL-Checker to Support Corep Compliance

Lombard Risk Management is offering firms that must comply with the latest Common Reporting (Corep) rules a free eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) checker to help them resolve XBRL validation errors that can occur when submitting required reports to the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

The FCA’s Gabriel reporting system has been in place since April 1, 2014 for firms to test and submit reports, ahead of the 30 June deadline for compliance with the Corep rules. To ease the Corep reporting process, which requires reports to be submitted in the XBRL format, Lombard’s online XBRL-Checker helps firms gain insight into Assertion ID codes, essentially error codes issued by report submission systems, allowing them to identify XBRL errors and resolve them.

Nick Davies, chief technology officer at Lombard Risk, explains: “We started hearing from firms that were not using Lombard Risk Reporter that they were experiencing problems understanding the regulators’ submission validation error codes and Assertion IDs, so we developed this free-to-use application to provide some relief. XBRL-Checker makes it easier to investigate errors.” XBRL-Checker is free to use for all firms, whether or not they are Lombard Risk clients.
