February, 2022

More rule proposals with structured data requirements from the SEC. This month the Securities and Exchange Commission published two new proposals that contained structured data requirements, both with comment period due dates of April 22, 2022. Cybersecurity Risk Management for Investment Advisors, Registered Investment Companies, and Business Development Companies proposes that registered investment advisers and investment companies be required to adopt and implement cybersecurity policies and procedures to address cybersecurity risks; and to report cybersecurity incidents to the Commission. Disclosures about significant cybersecurity incidents would be required to be made to prospective and current investors in Inline XBRL format.

The second proposal, Shortening the Securities Transaction Settlement Cycle, aims to reduce the standard settlement cycle for most broker-dealer transactions from two to one business day after the trade date with a compliance date of March 31, 2024. The proposal would require a Central Matching Service Provider (CMSP) to submit a report to the SEC every twelve months describing the CMSPs policies and procedures for facilitating straight-through-processing (STP), its progress in facilitating STP during the period, and steps the CMSP will take in the following 12 months. The report would need to be submitted to EDGAR using Inline XBRL.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission published the final 2022 eForms Taxonomies. This release should be used by public utilities complying with the new FERC requirements for XBRL preparation. Learn about XBRL US and Member resources to help filers prepare and submit reports.
