Validating your IATI file

After you've created an IATI file (activity file or organisation file), you can check online whether it is in accordance with the IATI standard. To do so, visit the page of the IATI public validator.

First you have to upload your file. Click the Browse... button and select the file on your computer, then click Upload.

The Validator will do two tests. First it will check if your file is a well formed XML document. This is more of a technical test and it checks whether the document can be recognised as a XML document (and not a PDF document for instance).

Validate if your file is a well-formed xml file

Secondly, you can start the actual validation by clicking on the Test Validation link (see above). If all goes well then you get to see the following screen:

File is validated
