"We are pleased with the early success of the DQC, and we expect a further decrease in the number of errors in the data covered by the Committee's rules as more public companies comply," said Mike Starr, Vice President for Governmental and Regulatory Affairs for Workiva, who chairs the DQC.
"Our Wdesk platform is certified for incorporating the DQC's initial set of validation rules, which automates compliance for our customers," said Marty Vanderploeg, President and COO of Workiva. "Our customers accounted for more than 50 percent of the XBRL facts filed with the SEC in the first quarter of 2016. We want to help them be confident that their filings are complete and accurate before submitting them to the SEC."
The DQC, which approved its first set of validation rules last November, expects to release its second set of rules in June for public exposure and comment. Wdesk plans to incorporate each new set of rules as the DQC approves them for final release.
