  • SEC (US Securities and Exchange Commission) Image

Oct 21, 2014

The SEC has issued a final rule updating its Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) System Filer Manual (Volumes I, II, and III) and has issued Version 13 of the EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification and Version 1 of the EDGAR ABS XML Technical Specification.

Updates to the EDGAR Filer Manual include the following:

  • New submission form types.
  • New exhibits on EDGARLink Online.
  • Item 6.06 of Form 8-K (“Static Pool”) on EDGARLink Online for additional submission types.
  • Removal of references to leased-line filings, since EDGAR no longer supports the leased-line filing method.
  • Minor, documentation-only corrections.

For more information, see the final rule and EDGAR page on the SEC’s Web site.
