EDGAR Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval System

EDGAR Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval System

The system through which companies electronically file reports and registration statements with the SEC. This requires converting the paper or word-processing document to be filed into a universal ASCII format, a process known as EDGAR-izing the document. The filings can then be accessed by the public through the SEC's Web site on the Internet.
