WCIRB Connect® conducts a number of unit statistical report (USR) submission preprocessing validations to ensure that submitted USR data is formatted consistent with WCSTAT specifications. Preprocessing errors are logged as fatal, permissions, critical or non-critical. If a submission contains any fatal, permissions or critical preprocessing errors, the submission is either rejected or only partially processed, and the submitter must correct the error(s) and resubmit the USRs.
A Processing Error by Transaction (PET) report detailing each error is available on WCIRB Connect. For descriptions and samples of these reports, see USR Submission Reports. The status of a submission is also available anytime on WCIRB Connect under Submission Manager.
Below is a link to the current version of the USR Preprocessing Error List detailing the preprocessing edits that are applied to all USR submissions. Insurers and other data submitters should review this list to ensure that submissions are consistent with the indicated requirements.
WCIRB Connect has four categories of preprocessing error severities:
After being processed into the WCIRB system, each USR is subjected to a number of audit validations. Below is a listing of the USR audit error descriptions that is the basis for WCIRB USR correspondence.
