DRAFT EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification (Version 18)

Implementation Date: September 14, 2015

This draft EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification, 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 technical specification, the SEC retains the right to change any part of the technical specification before the new system release is made final. In addition, the final EDGARLink Online 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 technical specification does not indicate Commission approval of any pending proposed changes relating to the potential changes reflected in the draft technical specification. The changes outlined in this draft technical specification, if approved, are scheduled to take effect on September 14, 2015. The final version of the technical specification will be made available if approved by the Commission on or about September 14, 2015, on the SEC's Public Website.

EDGAR Release 15.3 will introduce the following changes to the EDGARLink Online XML Technical Specification:

  • The new submission form types, SDR-CCO and SDR-CCO/A were added as EDGARLink Online Form Submissions.
  • The schema file "eis_Common.xsd" was updated to define new complex types "CONFIDENTIAL_DOCUMENT_TYPE1" and "CONFIDENTIAL_DOCUMENTS_TYPE1" to allow filers to mark documents as confidential.
