EDGAR Form N-PORT XML Technical Specification (Version 1.7)

Implementation Date: June 10, 2019

The Form N-PORT XML Technical Specification (Version 1.7) document describes 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 a basis for creating Form N-PORT 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 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 Website (https://www.onlineforms.edgarfiling.sec.gov).

EDGAR Release 19.2 will introduce the following change:

  • Section 3.4, corrected the documentation of “rtn1”, “rtn2” and “rtn3” to reflect the schema.

    This is only a text change update and no change was made to the schema.
