Early Warning Reporting - XML Schema

Notice to Light Vehicles and Buses, Medium & Heavy Vehicles Submitters

As of January 1, 2015 new XML schemas will be required for your data submittals. The Version 2.0 files can be downloaded from the second table below to allow for setting up your processing to accommodate the new requirements.

Submissions using the new schemas will NOT be accepted prior to January 1, 2015. After January 1, 2015 only revisions to submissions prior to that date will be accepted using the old schemas.

The following table lists the XML schema that are available for use in validating Early Warning Reporting (EWR) aggregate and death and injury data that you enter into XML data files. Once you have downloaded the schema, you may use them in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Early Warning Reporting (EWR) XML Validator to validate your XML data files before you transmit them to NHTSA. For more information about the NHTSA EWR XML Validator, see Downloading the NHTSA EWR XML Validator. For information about downloading the schema, see the Download Instructions section of this page.
