Draft EDGARLink Filer Manual (Vol I) Rel 8.7
Expected Effective Date: April 26, 2004

EDGAR is being updated, primarily, to support the mandatory electronic filing of Form ID, the application for access codes to file on EDGAR, via a new EDGAR Filer Management website, and to support the initial period of our proposal to expand the information that we require certain open-end management investment companies and insurance company separate accounts to submit to us electronically through EDGAR regarding their series and classes (or contracts, in the case of separate accounts), using a new Series and Classes (Contracts) Information page on the EDGAR Filer Website (https://www.edgarfiling.sec.gov).

In anticipation of this new release, EDGAR Release 8.7, the EDGARLink Filer Manual has been updated in draft. The changes have been identified via redlines.

The Draft EDGARLink Filer Manual Rel 8.7 contains instructions for creating and submitting electronic disclosure filings to the SEC's Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) system. The manual is also useful for anyone who works extensively with the disseminated EDGAR filings.
