Notice to EDGAR Filers:
EDGAR Release 8.6 Testing
In response to a number of requests from the third party software developers
to test the new EDGAR 8.6 system release, the SEC will offer limited testing. This test period is open only to those developing software for the creation of Section 16 filings (Forms 3, 4, 5, and amendments) who want to test the changes in Release 8.6 only. Please keep in mind that this test period is designed to enable third party software developers to perfect their software prior to production cutover.
Because the testing will be conducted in an internal SEC system and not on the production system, you will need a special test CIK and CCC to participate in this testing effort. These test codes can be used only during the test period. You may request a test CIK and CCC from Filer Support by sending an e-mail to the OFIS Tech Unit mailbox (firstname.lastname@example.org) by COB Friday, July 11, 2003. You must include the e-mail address to which the codes will be sent.
