EDGAR SBS Entity Forms XML Technical Specification (Version 1)

Implementation Date: April 25, 2016

The EDGAR SBS Entity Forms XML Technical Specification (Version 1) document describes the valid structure and content of the SBS Entity Forms 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 SBS Entity Forms XML submissions. The expectation is that software developers, working on behalf of filers, will be able to construct software that will generate an SBS Entity Form XML submission that can be successfully processed by the EDGAR system.

The SBS Entity Form submission file must conform to the EDGAR SBS Entity Form Submission Taxonomy. This taxonomy is comprised of a collection of XML Schema Definition (.xsd) files that define the structures of EDGAR SBS Entity Forms submissions. The SBS Entity Forms 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).
