XML files

XML is a standard used to compile machine and man-readable documents in the form of a tree structure, defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). XML specifies the rules concerning the structure of such documents. As for a concrete use case (XML application), the details of the documents concerned must be specified.

To report  intra-Community trade data in the XML-form two XML-formats are intended. INSTAT/XML, please see chapter 6.2  Uploading declaration files in INSTAT/XML format or DatML/RAW, please see chapter 6.3 Uploading declaration files in DatML/RAW format for more information.

Other XML files created by means of other programs (for example Excel) do not correspond to the accepted XML formats and consequently, cannot be processed.
