DRAFT EDGAR Form N-MFP XML Technical Specification (Version 1)
Implementation Date: August 30, 2010
This DRAFT EDGAR Form N-MFP XML Technical Specification (Version 1), 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 N-MFP 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 M-MFP XML Technical Specification (Version 1) 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 August 30, 2010. The final version of the specification will be made available if approved by the Commission on or about August 30, 2010 on the SEC's Public Website.
In support of the adoption of new rule 30b1-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and new Form N-MFP, which were included in the Commission’s recent money market fund reform package (See Release No. IC-29132 [75 FR 10060]), the EDGAR system will be upgraded to Release 10.3 on August 30, 2010. EDGAR Release 10.3 will deploy new submission types N-MFP and N-MFP/A to facilitate the electronic filing of the new form. Filers must follow the Form N-MFP XML Technical Specification to construct their Form N-MFP and Form N-MFP/A submissions via the EDGAR Filing Web site (https://www.edgarfiling.sec.gov/) or by clicking the “Are you an EDGARLink filer or would you like to create a new Asset-Backed Securities Issuing Entity?” link from the EDGAR Portal Web site (http://www.portal.edgarfiling.sec.gov).
The following EDGAR Form N-MFP XML Technical Specification documents detail the valid structure and content of the EDGAR Form N-MFP submission types (N-MFP and N-MFP/A).
