EDGAR Release

EDGAR 19.2

(June 2019)

Release 19.2:   On June 10, 2019, EDGAR Release 19.2 introduced the following changes:

Effective June 10, 2019, an enhanced "Application for EDGAR Access (Form ID)" is available on the EDGAR Filer Management Website. This can be accessed by selecting the 'Apply for EDGAR Access (New)' link on the home page of the EDGAR Filer Management Website. As part of the online version of the form:
Applicants can save their Form ID application and then resume the application by restoring it at a later time.
In addition, PDF attachments for "Application for EDGAR Access (Form ID)" and "Update Passphrase" are validated. See Chapter 3 (Becoming an EDGAR Filer) of the "EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume I: General Information."
After June 30, 2019, EDGAR will no longer accept the following form types due to the Commission's rescission of Form N-SAR (Release 33-10231): NSAR-A, NSAR-A/A, NSAR-AT, NSAR-AT/A, NSAR-B, NSAR-B/A, NSAR-BT, NSAR-BT/A, NSAR-U, NSAR-U/A, NT-NSAR, NT-NSAR/A, NTFNSAR, and NTFNSAR/A. In addition, "EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume III: N-SAR Supplement" will be rescinded and no longer available for download from https://www.sec.gov/info/edgar/edmanuals.htm.
In Commission Release 33-10618, certain disclosure requirements for Regulation S-K were modernized and simplified. These changes improved readability and navigability of disclosure documents, as well as discourage repetition and the disclosure of immaterial information. As a result of these changes:
Filers can include cover tags within any Inline XBRL document set for submission forms that permit Inline XBRL. EDGAR warns filers if any required cover tags are missing, nil, or empty in 10-K, 10-K/A, 10-KT, 10-KT/A, 10-Q, 10-Q/A, 10-QT, 10-QT/A, 8-K, 8-K/A, 8-K12B, 8-K12B/A, 8-K12G3, 8-K12G3/A, 8-K15D5, 8-K15D5/A, 20-F, 20-F/A, 40-F, and 40-F/A when these are submitted as Inline XBRL format.
Filers can reference modules and segments constructed in either ASCII or HTML format in their HTML submission documents.
See Chapter 5 (Constructing Attached Documents and Document Types), Chapter 6 (Interactive Data), and Appendix A (Messages Reported by EDGAR) of the "EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume II: EDGAR Filing."
Form MA (and its variants) was updated with the following changes:
For submission form types MA, MA-A, MA/A, MA-I, and MA-I/A submitted using the filer-interface, EDGAR no longer prepends leading zeros for the provided CRD Number values. Any CRD Number with prepended zeros has the zeros removed.
For filer-constructed submissions, filers should either provide a value of "000000000" or ensure that the CRD Number value does not have any leading zeros. Otherwise, the filer-constructed submission is suspended if there are leading zeros for the CRD Number value.
For submission form types MA, MA-A, and MA/A, filers can no longer edit their response if a value of "No" is provided for the field "Is the mailing address different from the principal office and place of business address in Item 1-E(1)?"
For submission form types MA-A and MA/A, Schedule C was updated with a "Summary of Schedule C Changes" button to only display the newly added, edited, or deleted entries from Schedules A and B in that current submission. On the Print 'Current Form' option, only the newly added, edited, or deleted entries from Schedule C display within Schedule C. The "Type of Amendment" value no longer pre-populates for existing entries on Schedule C.
The Print 'Current Form' option for submission form types MA, MA-A, MA/A, MA-I, and MA-I/A was updated to no longer display Part 2 information of the DRPs if a filer responds "Yes" to the field "Is an accurate and up-to-date DRP containing the information regarding the applicant or associated person required by this DRP already on file (a) in the IARD or CRD system (with a Form ADV, BD, or U4), or (b) in the SEC's EDGAR system (with a Form MA or Form MA-I)?" In addition, the "Provide the applicable information indicated below that identifies where the DRP may be found" section of Part 1 of the DRPs is not displayed on the Print 'Current Form' if there is no information provided in that section within Part 1.
See Chapter 8 (Preparing and Transmitting Online Submissions) of the "EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume II: EDGAR Filing."
For more information, see the "EDGAR Form MA XML Technical Specification" document available on the SEC's Public Website (https://www.sec.gov/info/edgar/tech-specs).
EDGAR no longer provides support for the US-GAAP 2017, EXCH 2017, and CURRENCY 2016 taxonomies. EDGAR was also updated to support the 2019 version of IFRS Taxonomy. Please see https://www.sec.gov/info/edgar/edgartaxonomies.shtml for a complete list of supported standard taxonomies.
