Form ID Description
Typically submitted for those required to make certain disclosures under federal securities laws. Data used to screen applicants requesting EDGAR access and is essential to EDGAR security. Submitted to receive EDGAR ID number, central index key (CIK), and access codes.

Form ID Revisions
Considered amendments for a more uniform and secure process for EDGAR access, by requiring certain applicants that already have a CIK, but do not currently have EDGAR access codes, to submit the Form ID in order to obtain access to EDGAR. Also, Form ID amendment to delete references to applicants that do not have CIKs. To clarify that Form ID required by applicants with CIKs but not EDGAR access codes.
