Filing Agent/Filer Software Adjustment Needed for Upcoming EDGAR Change

Feb. 10, 2022

On or about April 4, 2022, the SEC plans to implement a change to the EDGAR filing websites (EDGAR Filer Web a/k/a EDGAR Link Online and Online Forms) that will impact how some third-party software may communicate with these websites.

Specifically, EDGAR will create a unique parameter that some third-party software products may need to include with every request that enters/updates information.  EDGAR will verify the existence and validity of the parameter in filers’ requests, and will terminate user sessions if the value of the parameter is missing or mismatched.  

Filing agents/filing software vendors can obtain technical details on this upcoming change by logging into EDGAR Filer Web a/k/a EDGAR Link Online and viewing the information under the “EDGAR Filer News” section.

The SEC plans to make the EDGAR Beta environment available in March 2022 to filing agents/filing software vendors who wish to test their software changes to accommodate this change.  We will provide information about EDGAR Beta testing to identified filing agents by February 28, 2022.  If you have any questions, please email

Thank you.
