The effective date for the updated Filer Manual and the rule amendments is February 8, 2017. In accordance with the APA,6 we find that there is good cause to establish an effective date less than 30 days after publication of these rules.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are adopting an updated EDGAR Filer

submission of electronic filings through the EDGAR system.\1\ It also 
describes the requirements for filing using EDGARLink Online and the 
Online Forms/XML Web site.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ We originally adopted the Filer Manual on April 1, 1993, 
with an effective date of April 26, 1993. Release No. 33-6986 (April 
1, 1993) [58 FR 18638]. We implemented the most recent update to the 
Filer Manual on December 12, 2016. See Release No. 33-10265 (January 
23, 2017) [82 FR 7645].

    The revisions to the Filer Manual reflect changes within Volume I 
entitled EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume I: ``General Information,'' Version 
26 (January 2017), Volume II entitled EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume II: 
``EDGAR Filing,'' Version 40 (January 2017), and Volume III: ``N-SAR

    The EDGAR system will be upgraded to Release 17.0.2 on January 30, 
2017 and will introduce the following changes:
    EDGAR will be upgraded with an enhanced authentication process to 
increase the security surrounding a filer's request for a passphrase 
update. This includes the issuance of a one-time security token which 
will be emailed to the registrant at the email address on record. If 
the email on record is not valid, the filer will need to provide 
authorization to have their codes reset, and in the case of a company, 
the request must be on company letterhead. If a Power of Attorney (POA) 
is provided, it must be manually signed. For more information, please 
refer to Section 4.1.1 of ``EDGAR Filer Manual Volume I: General 
Information''.
    Filers will have the option to add one or more attachments of type 
``FULL'' to submission form types X-17A-5 and X-17A-5/A, which can be 
designated as ``Public'' or ``Confidential.'' If a ``FULL'' attachment 
designated as ``Public'' is attached, then all other attachment types 
are optional.
    The EDGAR Portal, EDGAR Company Database, and the landing pages for 
all EDGAR Web sites will be updated to remove any reference to Internet 
Explorer (IE) 8.0 and Firefox version 24.x, and to update the language 
so that vendor supported versions of IE and Google Chrome are the 
recommended browsers. The references to Internet Explorer 8.0 and 
Firefox 24.x will be deleted in ``EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume I: General 
Information,'' ``EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume II: EDGAR Filing,'' and 
``EDGAR Filer Manual: Volume III: N-SAR Supplement.''
    Along with the adoption of the Filer Manual, we are amending Rule 
301 of Regulation S-T to provide for the incorporation by reference 
into the Code of Federal Regulations of today's revisions. This 
incorporation by reference was approved by the Director of the Federal 
Register in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR part 51.
    The updated EDGAR Filer Manual will be available for Web site 
viewing and printing; the address for the Filer Manual is https://www.sec.gov/info/edgar/edmanuals.htm. You may also obtain paper copies 
of the EDGAR Filer Manual from the following address: Public Reference 
Room, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, 100 F Street NE., 
Washington, DC 20549, on official business days between the hours of 
10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
    Since the Filer Manual and the corresponding rule changes relate 
solely to agency procedures or practice, publication for notice and 
comment is not required under the Administrative Procedure Act 
(APA).\4\ It follows that the requirements of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act \5\ do not apply.

    \4\ 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A).
    \5\ 5 U.S.C. 601-612.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The effective date for the updated Filer Manual and the rule 
amendments is February 8, 2017. In accordance with the APA,\6\ we find 
that there is good cause to establish an effective date less than 30 
days after publication of these rules. The EDGAR system upgrade to 
Release 17.0.2 is scheduled to become available on January 30, 2017. 
The Commission believes that establishing an effective date less than 
30 days after publication of these rules is necessary to coordinate the 
effectiveness of the updated Filer Manual with these system upgrades.
