Produit Improved Archive Data
This product allows users to obtain all the references and documents of filings in which the National Bank has made improvements over the past three years. These improvements include:
- encoding of PDF filings as structured data,
- the conversion of foreign currency filings into euros and
- corrections to received data.
The product allows users to request all information improved by the National Bank for the last three years in the form of datasets (ZIP file). Each day, the National Bank produces a dataset containing the references of improved filings and a dataset with the JSON documents of improved data.
The Improved Archive Data product aggregates these daily datasets over a three-year period, with daily additions of improvements made the day before (+30 days) and deletions of improvements made more than three years ago.
A user specifies the date and type of dataset when requesting the web service. This date must always be in the past. The current date or a future date is invalid.
No XBRL or PDF file is produced for corrected filings.
For all filings improved on working day D, the following dataset is produced daily, made available via the improved data on D+1 of the improvement date and added to the archive or "Improved Archive Data" after 30 days:
- References of improved filings
Reference list of all filings improved since 4 April 2022 (with a view to ultimately creating an archive covering the last three years – i.e. a full three-year archive will be available in May 2025.
- The JSON documents belonging to the filings
ZIP files of all JSON documents in filings that have been improved since 4 April 2022 (with a view to ultimately creating an archive covering the last three years – i.e. a full three-year archive will be available in May 2025.
This product supports the following operations:
- Retrieval of all references to filings improved on a certain date within the last three years
This operation returns a list of all references for filings improved on the entered date for the last 3 years.
“Improved Archive Data" references for (part of) 2019, 2020, and 2021 will be available immediately on the 4 April 2022 go-live date. After the go-live date, the references will be deleted from the "Improved Data" after 30 days and copied to the "Improved Archive Data".
The result is a ZIP file with the reference files. The date is a mandatory parameter.
- Retrieval of all structured data in JSON format from filings improved on a certain date since 4 April 2022 with a view to ultimately creating an archive for the last three years.
This operation provides all the structured data files in JSON format containing the description of the legal entity, the accounting data and the data on holdings, shareholder structure and mandates extracted (only for PDF_ENCODED) from the documents published on the specified date. The result is a ZIP file containing the JSON files.
When the new web services are launched on 4 April 2022, the accounting data will be copied from "Improved Data" to "Improved Archive data" after 30 days. The accounting data archives will start to be built up at that date, i.e., no data for the last three years will initially be available.
Corrections to the received data (improvement type "CORRECTED") will not be available until 1 July 2022 at the latest, with retroactive effect from 4 April 2022. The encoding of PDF filings into structured data (improvement type "PDF_ENCODED") and the conversion of foreign currency filings into euros (improvement type "EURO_CONVERTED") will be available 30 days after the improvement for filings as of 4 April 2022.
