EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification (Version 17)

Implementation Date: August 3, 2015

This EDGARLink Online (ELO) XML Technical specification provides, to those filers that are interested, a basis for creating XML submissions without the use of the EDGAR OnlineForms/XML Website.  The expectation is that software developers, working on behalf of filers, will construct software that will generate an ELO XML submission that can be successfully processed by the EDGAR system.

The ELO Submissions should conform to the EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification, namely, the XML schemas. Refer to XML schemas for detailed information on the common XML constructs of the EDGAR Filing submissions. For specific information about the data content of the ELO submission types, refer to the EDGAR Filer Manual Volume II available on the SEC’s Public Website (http://www.sec.gov).

EDGAR Release 15.2.2 introduced the following changes to the ELO XML Technical Specification:

  • The new submission form types, NRSRO-UPD, NRSRO-CE, NRSRO-CE/A, NRSRO-WREG, NRSRO-WCLS, NRSRO-FR, and NRSRO-FR/A were added as EDGARLink Online Form Submissions.
  • The schema file "eis_Common.xsd" was updated to add a 256 char string type which defines the character limit for the new Brief Description field.
  • The schema file "eis_SingleFiler.xsd" was updated to add the new NRSRO submission types and add the new "description" and "calendarYearEnd" fields.
