EDGAR Filer Manual (Volume II)
“Transmitting Modules and Segments.” If your live filing is accepted, EDGAR will
index and store your module or segment.
Your modules or segments must have been created, transmitted, accepted, and indexed by
EDGAR before you are able to reference them within a submission document.
Modules and segments are stored on EDGAR and indexed by your CIK. Other CIKs can
reference your modules, but they must have the pertinent information: CIK, CCC, module name.
Segments can be referenced by other CIKs, but must be submitted by listing the CIK of the
segment creator. Modules must be removed from EDGAR by the filing CIK, while EDGAR
automatically deletes segments. Refer to Section 5.3.3, “Maintaining Modules and Segments,”
for Module and Segment maintenance. When EDGAR processes a submission referencing a
Type 1 module or segment, they are automatically included within the submission.
Multiple references to the same Type 1 module or segment will suspend the filing.
126.96.36.199 Type 2 Modules and Segments
Type 2 modules and segments are complete documents and when EDGAR receives your
submission they are included at the bottom of the submission. Preparation of the documents
themselves is discussed in the previous Sections. Referencing or including them in your filing is
discussed in Section 188.8.131.52, “Referencing Your Module or Segment Document.” Using the
Referenced Module/Submission List page allows you to add only Type 2 modules and segments
in your submission. Since Type 2 modules and segments are complete documents, you do not
have to modify another attached document to show where the content must be inserted like you
do for Type 1 modules or segments. The rest of this section deals with this topic.
184.108.40.206 Type 1 Module References
EDGAR treats the module as your private information, and stores it on our database according to
your CIK. Another filer may reference your module by providing your CIK and CCC, as shown
in the examples.
To include a Type 1 module in a document, you must include a reference to the Type 1 module
within a document. Type 2 modules are treated like submission documents and are included in
your submission automatically when you include them on the Attached Module/Segment page.
They are attached at the bottom of the submission. EDGAR will suspend any module with
submission headers or document headers.
220.127.116.11 How to Reference a Type 1 Module in a Submission Document
EDGAR compiles, processes, and indexes your submissions. You are still required to place Type
1 module references within the document text where you want the module to appear.
The following is an example of how to refer to a module in a subsequent submission:
Example of Referencing a TYPE 1 Module – a partial document (this reference is made within
the text of a document.):
