This DRAFT EDGAR TA-2 XML Technical Specification (Version 5.2.0) and TA-W XML Technical Specification (Version 1.2.0) posted before Commission approval of potential regulatory changes in this release, is provided as a service to our filing community to assist filers, agents, and software developers in their preparation of responses to potential changes the staff anticipates. Since these are draft specifications, the SEC retains the right to change any part of the specifications before the new system release is made final. In addition, the final EDGAR TA-2 and TA-W XML Technical Specifications are subject to Commission approval and may be revised before approval or not approved at all. Similarly, the posting of the DRAFT EDGAR TA-2 (Version 5.2.0) and TA-W (Version 1.2.0) XML Technical Specifications does not indicate Commission approval of any pending proposed changes relating to the potential changes reflected in the draft specification. The changes outlined in this draft specification, if approved, are scheduled to take effect on or about December 15, 2008. The final version of the specification will be made available as and if approved by the Commission on or about December 15, 2008 on the SEC's Public Website.
