One-Day Shutdown of the EDGAR Filing System
Washington, D.C., October 2, 2000 – In order to remind the public of the one-day shutdown of EDGAR operations on November 24, 2000, the day following the Thanksgiving Day holiday, the Commission is republishing the following information.
What and When?
We will shut down our EDGAR system for one day on Friday, November 24, 2000. We will not receive or disseminate electronic filings that day. We will reopen the EDGAR system for business as usual at 8:00 am on Monday, November 27, 2000.
We are shutting EDGAR down for one day to allow us sufficient time to make a major upgrade to the internal portion of the EDGAR system, completing EDGAR's transition to the Internet.
How will this affect us?
Since the day after Thanksgiving historically has had the fewest filings of any day in the year, we anticipate that this one-day shutdown will have a minimum impact on the filing community and disseminators. Other than the temporary shutdown, the internal upgrade will not affect filers and disseminators.
What if my EDGAR filing is due on November 24, 2000?
What if Ihave a paper filing due November 24, 2000?
Can I use the EDGAR Filing website?
We will keep our EDGAR filing website (https://www.edgarfiling.sec.gov) open on Friday, November 24, 2000, for limited use. You will not be able to use the site to make filings or to change your company information that day, but you may use it for other purposes, such as to construct filings and to check the status of previously submitted filings.
What about the public reference room and EDGAR database on the SEC's website?
