EDGAR ABS XML Technical Specification (Version 1.8)

Implementation Date: March 11, 2019

The ABS XML Technical Specification (Version 1.8) document describes the valid structure and content of the ABS Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) Extensible Markup Language (XML) Asset Data File types. The ABS XML Technical Specification provides a basis for creating ABS Asset Data File Types that can be successfully processed by the EDGAR system.

The ABS Asset Data Files must conform to the EDGAR ABS Asset Data File Taxonomy for the EDGAR system. This taxonomy comprises a collection of XML Schema Definition (.xsd) files that defines the structure of ABS Asset Data File Types.  The ABS Asset Data Files can be transmitted to the SEC via the ‘Transmit’ link on the EDGAR FilerWeb (https://www.edgarfiling.sec.gov/) or the ‘Transmit XML Submission’ link on the EDGAR OnlineForms Website (https://www.onlineforms.edgarfiling.sec.gov).

EDGAR Release 19.1 will introduce the following change:

  • In the RMBS schema “eis_ABS_RMBSAssetData.xsd”, added 98 as  a valid value for all the following Xml data elements on EX-102:
    • Item 1(e)(7) OBLGR_INCM_VRFCTN_LVL_CODE_TYPE
    • Item 1(e)(11) OBLGR_EMPLOY_VRFCTN_CODE_TYPE
    • Item 1(e)(13) OBLGR_ASSET_VRFCTN_CODE_TYPE
