EDGAR Form TA-1 XML Technical Specification (Version 3.4.0)

EDGAR Form TA-2 XML Technical Specification (Version 5.5.0)

EDGAR Form TA-W XML Technical Specification (Version 1.4.0)

The EDGARLite application aids filers in creating and submitting XML-encoded submissions. The first series of forms to be implemented using this application are Transfer Agent forms TA-1, TA-2, and TA-W (and their respective amendments). For details regarding use of the EDGARLite application, please refer to the EDGAR Filer Manual (Volume II) EDGAR Filing.

For filers interested in creating Transfer Agent XML forms without using the EDGARLite tool, the SEC provides XML Technical Specifications: EDGAR Form TA-1 XML Technical Specification (Version 3.4.0), EDGAR Form TA-2 XML Technical Specification (Version 5.5.0), and EDGAR Form TA-W XML Technical Specification (Version 1.4.0). These specifications include documents giving general descriptions and instructions about the XML file being created, the schema files containing the taxonomy that must be used, and stylesheets. Please review the EDGAR Filer Manual (Volumes I, II) for information regarding Transfer Agent forms before you begin.

On December 15, 2014, EDGAR Release 14.3 introduced the following changes:

EDGAR Form TA-2 XML Technical Specification (Version 5.5.0):

  • Item "3(a). Registrant's appropriate regulatory agency (ARA)" no longer has "Office of Thrift Supervision" as an option on TA-2 and TA-2/A EDGARLite Submission Template and it will no longer be accepted by EDGAR. Hence, the value "OTS" has been removed from the element in the XML schema eis_TA-2_Filer.xsd
  • Additional validations have been added to the system and the corresponding error conditions have been added to Table 5-1: EDGAR Processing Errors and Severity in this document. There is no change to any of the schema files for the implementation of these validations.
