EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification (Version 20)
Implementation Date: July 17, 2017
The EDGARLink Online (ELO) XML Technical specification (Version 20) document details the valid structure and content of the EDGARLink Online (ELO) Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) Extensible Markup Language (XML) submission types. This 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 EDGARLink Online 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 (https://www.sec.gov/info/edgar/edmanuals.htm).
EDGAR Release 17.2 will introduce the following changes:
- Section 3.4.18 (Mapping of Single Filer Subject Submission Schemas to Submission Types) was modified for Form Types ABS-15G and ABS-15G/A. The element “securitizerHas025FileNumber” is now conditionally mandatory based on the value provided for the element “securitizerHasCik”. The value for this element “securitizerHas025FileNumber” needs to be provided only when the filer provides a value ‘yes’ for the element “securitizerHasCik”.
- Sections 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 (Mapping of ELO CoReg Submission Schemas to Submission Types, Sections 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 (Mapping of ELO CoReg Fee Submission Schemas to Submission Types) was modified for the following form Types:
CoRegFee Schema Submission Form Types
CoReg Schema Submission Form Types
Two new optional elements “emergingGrowthCompanyFlag” and “exTransitionPeriodFlag” have been added to the CoRegFee schema and the CoReg schema. These elements are applicable only to the above submissions.
