Although not technically enforced, this Element shall contain a valid email address specifying the technical contact.

Each day the EDU-DEX server validates all EDU-DEX files provided. Two scenarios, depending on whether or not the directory file validates, should be considered:

  • The directory file validates:

    Error messages pertaining to the validation of individual items in the program, institute or clientDiscount files will be sent to the email address provided in each XML file.

  • The directory file fails validation:

    In this case the validator is unable to retrieve any email address (because no information can be accessed at all) and no error messages can be sent.
