With the Federal government recognizing Juneteenth (June 19) as a Federal holiday, we were happy to see the SEC’s Edgar Filer Communications announcement clarifying that Edgar is closed today, June 18. Edgar will resume normal operations on Monday, June 21.
Please be aware that on June 18, 2021:
• EDGAR filing websites will not be operational.
• Filings will not be accepted in EDGAR.
• EDGAR Filer Support will be closed.
It was late yesterday afternoon before the EDGAR announcement was released and members were reaching out asking whether EDGAR would be accepting filings today. The SEC’s announcement resolved those questions and June 21, 2021 is EDGAR’s next operational business day – so filings required to be made today, June 18, 2021, will be considered timely filed if filed on or before Monday, June 21, 2021.
The SEC also tweeted the Juneteenth holiday observance news with an SEC spokesperson noting “the exchanges make their own determinations on operating status for federal holidays & we understand that major markets will operate with normal market hours.”
