Last week, the SEC posted to its Web site drafts of the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval System (EDGAR) Filer Manual — Volumes I, II, and III for upcoming EDGAR Release 14.1.

The new release, which is scheduled for implementation on June 16, 2014, will introduce several changes, including the following:

  • Support for the U.S. GAAP 2014 Taxonomy.
  • Discontinued support for the U.S. GAAP 2012 Taxonomy and U.S. 2011 Document and Entity Information Taxonomy.
  • Improvements to filings containing the EX-101 XBRL documents.
  • Renaming “corporate debt" to "debt securities" for certain submission form types.
  • Change in the dissemination method for unofficial PDF attachments to EDGARLink Online submissions.
  • Updated FAQ section.

This draft has not been approved by the Commission and is subject to change. The final version of the EDGAR Filer Manual will be posted on the SEC’s Web site once it has been approved.
