EDGAR Rel 8.6 Reduced Content XML Filing Specification for Ownership Reports
With EDGAR Release 8.6, implemented on July 28, 2003, a variety of enhancements were made to improve the process of filing Ownership Reports Forms 3, 3/A, 4, 4/A,, 5 and 5/A via the EDGAR OnlineForms Website. As with EDGAR Release 8.5, these forms are no longer supported by EDGARLink and will need to be filed via the EDGAR OnlineForms Website.
The EDGAR Release 8.6 Online XML Filing Specification provides, to those filers who are interested, a basis for creating XML filings without the use of the EDGAR OnlineForms Website. The expectation is that software developers, working on behalf of filers, will construct software that will generate an XML ownership filing that can be successfully parsed by the EDGAR Receipt Server. The download of the filing specification also includes sample XML filings.
The following documents detail the valid structure and content of the six EDGAR Ownership submission types.
