What’s new – 31/03/2017 – updated schema

Following the extensive review done on AQD schema v1.0.7 and the revision of possible updates to make reporting smoother, we are pleased to announce the launch of the updated schema at You can also access it from the page toolbox – data model and schema.

In order to minimise the impact on reporting, we have ensured that the updated schema is backward compatible according to latest XML UserGuide. This way, there will be no changes required at your end in order to adapt to the updated schema.

Jaume Targa from ETC/ACM will brief on final updates to version 1.0.8 during the next IPR technical meeting in Copenhagen (25 & 26 April 2017). In the meantime, should you wish any clarification, please do not hesitate to contact AQ IPR helpdesk.
