Electronic Filing and Simplification of Form D
The Securities and Exchange Commission is publishing for comment proposals that would mandate the electronic filing of information required by Securities Act of 1933 Form D. We also are proposing revisions to Form D and to Regulation D in connection with the electronic filing proposals. The revisions would simplify and restructure Form D and update and revise its information requirements. The information required by Form D would be filed with us electronically through a new online filing system that would be accessible from any computer with Internet access. The data filed would be available on our Web site and would be interactive and easily searchable by regulators and members of the public who choose to access it.
