Sep 12, 2018

The SEC has announced that in Release 18.3 of its Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) system filer manual, it will “cease providing filers with access to return copies of EDGAR submissions, even if a return copy is requested as part of the submission process.”

EDGAR Release 18.3 is expected to be implemented on October 1, 2018. The SEC notes that in subsequent EDGAR releases, the option to request a return copy will be removed. The SEC also advises that “[f]ilers who wish to access copies of their submissions should save a copy on their device or storage service prior to submission to EDGAR.”

For more information, see the press release on the SEC’s Web site.
