Adoption of Updated EDGAR Filer Manual
Document Number: E7-16414
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-08-21
Agency: Securities and Exchange Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Securities and Exchange Commission (the Commission) is adopting revisions to the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval System (EDGAR) Filer Manual to reflect updates to the EDGAR system. Revisions are being made primarily to support the expansion of the current interactive data voluntary reporting program to enable mutual funds voluntarily to submit supplemental tagged information contained in the risk/return summary section of their prospectuses on Form N-1A. The EDGAR system is being upgraded to support this functionality on August 20, 2007. The filer manual is also being revised to incorporate changes in support of several final rules previously adopted by the Commission and implemented in EDGAR. Those rules include the termination of a foreign private issuer's registration of a class of securities under Section 12(g) and duty to file reports under Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (``Exchange Act''); the electronic filing of Transfer Agent (``TA'') forms TA-1, TA-2 and TA-W; and revisions to the accelerated filer definition under the Exchange Act. Other revisions were made to allow an issuer to indicate whether it is subject to reporting obligations after terminating registration of a class of equity securities under the Exchange Act and to remove references to submission types N-14AE and N-14AE/A for the filing of Form N-14 from ``Table 3-5: Investment Company Submission Types Accepted by EDGAR'' of the Filer Manual. Revisions to the Filer Manual reflect changes within Volumes I and II, entitled EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume I: ``General Information,'' Version 4 (August 2007) and EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume II: ``EDGAR Filing,'' Version 5 (August 2007) respectively. The updated manual will be incorporated by reference into the Code of Federal Regulations.
