EDGAR XFDL Technical Specification (Version 12)

Updated as of: December 13, 2010

This EDGAR XFDL Technical Specification (Version 12) provides, to those filers that are interested, a basis for creating XFDL filings without the use of the EDGARLink tool. The expectation is that software developers, working on behalf of filers, will construct software that will generate an XFDL filing that can be successfully parsed by the EDGAR system.

The EDGAR system was upgraded to Release 10.4 on December 13, 2010. The upgrade introduces the following change to the EDGAR XFDL Technical specification:

Changes By Template

A summary of the changes are as follows (please refer to the appendices that appear in the XFDL specification for details):

Two new submission form types (SC 14N, SC 14N-S) and their amendments have been added to EDGARLink Template 2. Use of the SC 14N and SC 14N-S is delayed until further notice. See Order Rel. No. 33-9149 (Order Granting Stay) for more information; see also Rel. No. 33-9151 (Notice of stay of effective and compliance dates).
