The Validation Utility Tool (VUT) is a software utility that can be used to validate IRF-PAI submission files in XML format. The tool enforces the edits that are mapped to the IRF-PAI items, as published in the IRF-PAI Data Specifications. The 1.6.0 VUT release adds support for version 4.00 IRF-PAI Data Specifications which are effective October 1, 2019 while continuing to support all older versions previously released.
Please note that there are edits which the VUT cannot support because they are edits against existing ASAP system data. The VUT does not interface with ASAP therefore it cannot confirm those edits.
