The SEC adopted revisions to the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval System (EDGAR) Filer Manual to reflect updates to the EDGAR system made in EDGAR Release 9.17. The revisions were made primarily to enforce additional XBRL validation requirements to improve the quality of XBRL exhibits; to allow filers to electronically submit the withdrawal of application for exemptive or other relief from the Investment Companies Act as submission types APP WD and APP WD/A; and, to allow filers to add Subject Company related information for the submission types F-6, F-6/A, F-6EF, and F-6POS. The revisions to the Filer Manual reflect changes within Volume I entitled EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume I: “General Information,” Version 8 (September 2009) and Volume II entitled EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume II: “EDGAR Filing,” Version 13 (September 2009). The updated manual will be incorporated by reference into the Code of Federal Regulations.
