Specification layout
Details of change:

The ILR specification layout has been updated to separate codes into the appropriate types, this removes the large list of codes to improve usability. Codes can be accessed by clicking on the type which will show all of the codes linked to it. The SOC, Domicile, Outcome Grades, LDM and DAM codes have been added into the specification pages to support the development of the API functionality.

The LDM and DAM code list, and the SOC code list will continue to be published as spreadsheets for 2021 to 2022. These can be found on the appendices page Appendices, validation rules, and schema ILR 2021 to 2022.

User research for the presentation of these pages will be carried out in due course.
