Electronic Filing Update

A new version of the electronic filing specifications (v.8) was implemented today (September 26, 2011). As of September 26, reports filed electronically must be formatted in Version 8 in order to be accepted.

FECFile Users
Current FECFile users need only open their software (after September 26) and accept the automatic update. Those wishing to download FECFile for the first time may do so at http://www.fec.gov/elecfil/updatelist.shtml.

Commercial Software Users
The FEC has been working with software vendors to prepare them for the revised specifications. Political committees using commercial filing software should contact their vendors for more information about the latest release. Vendors may access tools and the revised specifications at http://www.fec.gov/elecfil/vendors.shtml.

If you have any questions about the revised electronic filing specifications, please call the FEC’s Electronic Filing Office at: (202) 694-1307 or (800) 424-9530 ext. 1307 or visit http://www.fec.gov/elecfil/electron.shtml.
