DRAFT EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification (Version 3)

Implementation Date: August 1, 2011

This DRAFT EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification (Version 3), 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 this is a draft specification, the SEC retains the right to change any part of the specification before the new system release is made final. In addition, the final EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification is subject to Commission approval and may be revised before approval or not approved at all. Similarly, the posting of the DRAFT EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification (Version 3) 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 August 1, 2011. The final version of the specification will be made available if approved by the Commission on or about August 1, 2011 on the SEC's Public Website.

EDGAR Release 11.2 will introduce the following change to the Draft EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification (Version 3):

  • New submission form types N-PX-CR, N-PX-FM, N-PX-NT, N-PX-VR and their amendments will be available on EDGARLink Online. These submission types will be available for live filings November 1, 2011, or later, pending additional Commission rulemaking related to the amendments to Form N-PX.
  • EDGARLink Online submission form types N-PX and N-PX/A, will no longer support co-registrants. The N-PX and N-PX/A submissions will be suspended unless the filer's reporting file number is an 811- file number.
  • Corrections were made to the specification to add tables previously omitted, to remove submission types not supported in EDGARLink Online, and to correct spelling and grammatical errors.
  • Table 3.4.9 was updated to correctly document the applicability of element column for some of the elements in the schema.
The following Draft EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification documents detail the valid structure and content of the EDGARLink Online submission types.
