Draft EDGAR Form 17-H XML Technical Specification (Version 1.1)

Implementation Date: July 2017

This draft EDGAR Form 17-H 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 EDGAR Form 17-H 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 July 17, 2017. The final version of the technical specification will be made available if approved by the Commission on or about July 17, 2017, on the SEC's Public Website.

The Form 17-H submission file must conform to the EDGAR Form 17-H Submission Taxonomy. This taxonomy is comprised of a collection of XML Schema Definition (.xsd) files that define the structures of EDGAR Form 17-H submissions. The Form 17-H XML submissions can be transmitted to the SEC via the EDGAR FilerWeb (https://www.edgarfiling.sec.gov/) or the "Transmit XML Submission" option from the EDGAR OnlineForms/XML Website (https://www.onlineforms.edgarfiling.sec.gov).
