MDS Validator

AMHOCN data is submitted via the MDS Validator (WebVal). The MDS Validator allows you to upload your .DAT file to a secure server. Once the upload and validation process is complete (which can take some time depending on the size of your file) you will be sent an e-mail informing you of the status of your file and providing a link to the online reports. Note that you may zip your file prior to upload in order to reduce the size of the file. This zip file must not be password protected. The upload link itself is encrypted so the file does not travel across the Internet unprotected.

AMHOCN understands that data uploaded to the online validator may not be your final version ready for submission and therefore, until you make the decision to submit your file via the online validator, your upload remains in a private workspace inaccessible to anyone other than you. It is also possible to completely delete the file after validation in order to remove your data from the system.

Note that the Stand Alone Validator is no longer supported and online validation is the required validation and submission method.

Please refer to the MDS Validator documentation for more details on using the MDS Validator.
