PHI 52/18 Prostheses List – XML Version (PDF 54 KB)

This is to advise that a sample of the Prostheses List in XML format has been published on the Prostheses List webpage. This will assist developers in testing in preparation for the decommissioning of the Prostheses List in MS-Access format from March 2019.

The XML Schema document has been amended to clarify business requirements:

  • SubCategoryID is optional, not mandatory
  • the data type of CreationDate has changed
  • the ARTGType minimum length is 5 or 6 numerical digits.
The amended Schema document and XML file are also published on the website.

Feedback on experience in using the XML format and any issues encountered is always welcome. Please email feedback to with "Prostheses List XML format" in the subject line.
