DRAFT EDGAR Form D XML Technical Specification (Version 5.2.0)

Implementation Date: July 20, 2009

This DRAFT EDGAR Form D XML Technical Specification (Version 5.2.0), 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 D 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 D Technical Specification (Version 5.2.0) 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 July 20, 2009. The final version of the specification will be made available if approved by the Commission on or about July 20, 2009 on the SEC's Public Website.

EDGAR Release 9.16 introduces the following change to the DRAFT EDGAR Form D XML Technical Specification (Version 5.2.0):

  • A new element, “<entityTypeOtherDescription>” has been added to the XML Schema for Form D. The element will become mandatory if the “<entityType>” element has a value of “Other”.
