EDGAR Form N-PORT XML Technical Specification (Version 1.3)
Implementation Date: March 12, 2018
The EDGAR Form N-PORT XML Technical Specification (Version 1.3) document details the valid structure and content of the Form N-PORT Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) Extensible Markup Language (XML) submission types. This specification provides, to those filers that are interested, the basis for creating Form N-PORT XML submissions. The expectation is that software developers, working on behalf of filers, will be able to construct software that will generate a Form N-PORT XML submission that can be successfully processed by the EDGAR system.
The Form N-PORT submission file must conform to the EDGAR Form N-PORT Submission Taxonomy for the EDGAR system. This taxonomy comprises a collection of XML Schema Definition (.xsd) files that defines the structure of EDGAR Form N-PORT submissions. The Form N-PORT XML submissions 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/XML Website (https://www.onlineforms.edgarfiling.sec.gov).
EDGAR Release 18.1 will introduce the following changes:
