All fields and documents N/a Business stage and COMMIT-stage rules are now collectively referred to under the umbrella term Quality rules rather than validation rules in all associated documentation.
Data collection schedule 1.0 The Data collection schedule has been added under the 'Submission process and quality assurance' section. Guidance has been amended advising institutions to return sign-off forms to HESA via e-mail rather than by post.
