Aug 18, 2015

Last week, the SEC posted to its Web site drafts of Volumes I, II, and III of its Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval System (EDGAR) Filer Manual for upcoming EDGAR Release 15.3.

The new release, which is sched­uled for im­ple­men­ta­tion on September 14, 2015, will in­tro­duce several changes, in­clud­ing the fol­low­ing:

  • New sub­mis­sion form types.
  • New XBRL document types.
  • New ex­hibits on EDGAR­Link Online.
  • Minor, doc­u­men­ta­tion-only cor­rec­tions.
  • Soft­ware updates to address pre­vi­ous EDGAR updates.
  • Schema updates.

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.
