What does this mean for you?
If you’re filing with the 2017 Taxonomy:
Note that you WILL also receive a filing warning. This is an SEC bug that occurs on all 2017 filings and there is nothing a filer can do to resolve it. We believe the SEC is working to resolve this issue and we’ll keep you informed if and when that happens.
You can ignore these validation messages. The new elements associated with EFM 6.5.40 are only applicable when filing with the 2018 Taxonomy.
You will need to address these messages to meet the new DEI requirements. You can walk through these Warnings by right-clicking on the Warning and selecting View Detailed Information.
Do NOT extend for new DEI items in 2017 taxonomy.
We would NOT recommend migrating taxonomies within two weeks of your filing date.
