11 May SEC – Adoption of Updated EDGAR Filer Manual and Form ID Amendments
May 11, 2021 – The SEC is adopting amendments to Volumes I and II of the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval system (EDGAR) Filer Manual, a related form, and related rules. The amendments result in a more uniform and secure process for EDGAR access by requiring certain applicants that already have an EDGAR Central Index Key (or CIK) account number, but do not have EDGAR access codes, to submit the related form and an authenticating document to obtain access to EDGAR. The related form has also been amended to update its instructions and cross-references to Volume I of the Filer Manual. The revisions to Volume II reflect additional updates to the EDGAR system.
Effective date: May 11, 2021.
Incorporation by reference: The incorporation by reference of the EDGAR Filer Manual is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of May 11, 2021.
Compliance date: The applicable compliance date is discussed in Section VII.
