Compliance Date for Form 10-D Hyperlink Requirements

AGENCY: Securities and Exchange Commission.

ACTION: Notification of compliance date.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Securities and Exchange Commission (``Commission'') is 
publishing this document to inform the public that it has set a 
compliance date for its previously-adopted exhibit hyperlinking 
requirements for Form 10-Ds that require hyperlinks to any exhibits 
filed with Form ABS-EE. The Commission on March 1, 2017 required 
registrants that file registration statements and reports subject to 
the exhibit requirements under Item 601 of Regulation S-K, or that file 
Forms F-10 or 20-F, to include a hyperlink to each exhibit listed in 
the exhibit index of these filings, but deferred setting a compliance 
date with respect to any Form 10-D that will require hyperlinks to any 
exhibits filed with Form ABS-EE until the Commission announced that 
technical programming changes to allow issuers to include Form 10-D and 
Form ABS-EE in a single submission had been completed, and published a 
notification of the compliance date for Form 10-D in the Federal 
Register.

DATES: The compliance date with respect to any Form 10-D that will 
require hyperlinks to any exhibits filed with Form ABS-EE is June 1, 
2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kayla Roberts, Special Counsel, at 
(202) 551-3850, in the Office of Structured Finance, Division of 
Corporation Finance, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, 100 F 
Street NE, Washington, DC 20549.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 1, 2017, the Commission adopted 
rule and form amendments requiring registrants that file registration 
statements and reports subject to the exhibit requirements under Item 
601 of Regulation S-K,\1\ or that file Forms F-10 \2\ or 20-F,\3\ to 
include a hyperlink to each exhibit listed in the exhibit index of 
these filings.\4\ To enable the inclusion of hyperlinks, the amendments 
also require that registrants submit all filings on EDGAR in HyperText 
Markup Language (``HTML'') format because the American Standard Code 
for Information Interchange (``ASCII'') format cannot support 
functional hyperlinks.\5\

    The amendments took effect on September 1, 2017 for most 
registrants. Registrants that are ``smaller reporting companies,'' as 
defined in Rule 405 \6\ under the Securities Act of 1933 and Rule 12b-2 
\7\ under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or are neither ``large 
accelerated filers'' nor ``accelerated filers,'' as defined in Exchange 
Act Rule 12b-2, and that submit filings in ASCII will not need to 
comply with the new rules until September 1, 2018, one year after the 
effective date for other filers.\8\ The Commission deferred 
establishing a compliance date for any Form 10-D filing that will 
require a hyperlink to an exhibit filed with Form ABS-EE until 
Commission staff completed programming changes to EDGAR to allow Form 
10-D filers to include the Form 10-D and Form ABS-EE in a single EDGAR 
submission so that the required hyperlinks could be created at the time 
the Form 10-D is filed.\9\ Such programming changes have now been 
completed.\10\

requirement applies with respect to Form 10-D filings) & n.72 and

    Any registrant filing a Form 10-D on or after June 1, 2018, must 
include a hyperlink to any exhibit filed with Form ABS-EE that is 
included in the exhibit index of Form 10-D.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ Issuers are not required to submit their Form 10-D and Form 
ABS-EE in a single submission. An issuer may file a Form 10-D and 
Form ABS-EE in separate submissions and comply with the new 
requirements by including an external hyperlink in the Form 10-D to 
a previously filed Form ABS-EE.
