DRAFT EDGAR Filer Manual (Volume I)

This draft Filer Manual, 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 prepare for potential changes the staff anticipates. Since this is a draft manual, the SEC retains the right to change any part of the manual before the new system release is made final. In addition, the final EDGAR Filer Manual (Volume I) (Version 14) is subject to Commission approval and may be revised before approval or not approved at all. Similarly, the posting of the draft manual does not indicate Commission approval of any pending proposed changes relating to the potential changes reflected in the draft manual. The final version of the manual will be made available as and if approved by the Commission, on the SEC's Public Website.

Changes to the DRAFT EDGAR Filer Manual (Volume I) are being made to reflect changes scheduled to be implemented on October 1, 2012

  • New filers may select either the "JOBS Act ยง106" or "Foreign Private Issuer Policy" option on the Form ID application to indicate that they are submitting an application for EDGAR access to file Draft Registration Statements. These options will replace the "Access codes will be used to submit draft registration statement" check box. If the filers already have an assigned EDGAR Central Index Key (CIK), then they must use the existing CIK.
  • Starting October 1, 2012, filers initiating FEDWIRE transactions to make deposits to pay their filing fees will need to use a new US Treasury beneficiary account number (850000001001), as well as a new American Bank Association (ABA) number and bank name for the receiving bank (021030004/TREAS NYC). The current bank account number (152307768324) and receiving bank ABA number and name (081000210/US BANK) will be invalid from this date forward. Filer may obtain the new US Treasury account number and ABA number from the notice posted on the "Information for EDGAR Filers" web page prior to October 1, 2012 and by accessing the updated "Instructions for Wire Transfer (FEDWIRE) and Check Payment of SEC Filing Fees" by logging onto the EDGAR Filing Website and accessing the 'Fees' link on the EDGAR menu thereafter.
