Form ID and EDGAR Access Codes: CIK and CCC

  • by

Getting Started in EDGAR

To get started, you’ll need to apply to the SEC for EDGAR access codes (also known as filing codes) with a Form ID. You can do this on your own or we can help you with this first step. The EDGAR access codes you’ll need in order to file under EDGAR are the CIK (Central Index Key) and CCC (CIK Confirmation Code). To get these on your own, you will need to read the EDGAR Filer Manual section related to this.

EDGAR Filing Codes

If you would like us to help you to get your filing codes, the first thing to do is fill out this PDF file of the Form ID and email it to us. Please make sure you fill out all applicable fields. For a corporate entity select Filer; for an individual select Individual. The EDGAR contact will be the person who will receive the CIK from the SEC via email. We will use the information in this PDF to fill out a form online. We’ll create a PDF of the online form and email it to you to print out and have notarized. Once notarized, simply scan the form to PDF and return it to us. Once we get the form back, we will finalize the online form and upload all to the SEC for approval.
