DRAFT EDGAR Form TA-2 XML Technical Specification (Version 5.5.0)

Implementation Date: December 15, 2014

This DRAFT EDGAR Form TA-2 XML Technical Specification (Version 5.5.0), 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 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 EDGAR Form TA-2 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 EDGAR Form TA-2 XML Technical Specification (Version 5.5.0) 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 December 15, 2014. The final version of the specification will be made available if approved by the Commission on or about December 15, 2014 on the SEC's Public Website.

On December 15, 2014, EDGAR Release 14.3 will introduce the following changes:

  • Item "3(a). Registrant's appropriate regulatory agency (ARA)" no longer has "Office of Thrift Supervision" as an option on TA-2 and TA-2/A EDGARLite Submission Template and it will no longer be accepted by EDGAR. Hence, the value "OTS" has been removed from the element in the XML schema eis_TA-2_Filer.xsd
  • Additional validations have been added to the system and the corresponding error conditions have been added to Table 5-1: EDGAR Processing Errors and Severity in this document. There is no change to any of the schema files for the implementation of these validations.

The following Draft EDGAR Form TA-2 XML Technical Specification documents detail the valid structure and content of the EDGAR Form TA-2 submission types.
