Nov 22 -- The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is proposing rule and form amendments to update filing requirements under our Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (“EDGAR”) system. The proposed amendments would mandate the electronic filing or submission of most of the documents that are currently permitted electronic submissions under Regulation S-T, including all filings on Form 6-K and filings made by multilateral development banks; mandate the electronic submission in portable document format (“PDF format”) of the “glossy” annual report to security holders; mandate the electronic filing of the certification made pursuant to the Exchange Act and its rules that a security has been approved by an exchange for listing and registration; mandate the use of Inline eXtensible Business Reporting Language (“Inline XBRL”) for the filing of the financial statements and accompanying notes to the financial statements required by Form 11-K; and allow for the electronic submission in PDF format of certain foreign language documents.

We welcome feedback and encourage interested parties to submit comments on any or all aspects of the proposed rule amendments. When commenting, it would be most helpful if you include the reasoning behind your position or recommendation. Comments should be received on or before December 22, 2021.
