Additionally, the “Jurisdiction of Incorporation/Organization” drop down on the “Issuer Information” screen for submission forms C, C/A, C-U, C-AR, C-AR/A, and C-TR will be updated to only list U.S. States, District of Columbia, and U.S. Territories. 

  • Exhibit EX-102 (Asset Data File) has been updated to extend the length of certain fields and allow for “0” as a valid value in certain fields. The “EDGAR ABS XML Technical Specification” has been updated. 

  • Submission form types N-MFP1 and N-MFP1/A have been updated to allow a future date up to 2500/12/31 for Item C.8.d “Maturity Date”.
