The draft e-GGRT XML schema for Reporting Year 2021 is posted below. There is also a file summarizing the changes between the Reporting Year (RY) 2020 and the RY2021 Annual Report XML schema as well as a technical comparison report. Facilities must use the Final RY2021 Annual Report schema for all submissions and resubmissions (i.e., RY2021, RY2020, and prior years) once the RY2021 reporting season begins. Note that the e-GGRT software released in early 2022 for use in RY2021 reporting will only support years RY2016 through RY2021.
The Draft RY2021 Inputs Verifier Tool (IVT) schema is also posted below; it is unchanged since RY2017. For information on using e-GGRT to upload these IVT files, please refer to Uploading XML submissions with an XML IVT File.
The RY2021 XML schema WILL NOT BECOME EFFECTIVE until e-GGRT is made available for RY2021 reporting.
The information provided on this page is DRAFT . XML-based reporting submitted after e-GGRT is open for RY2021 reporting must be consistent with the FINAL schema.
