SEC filings go online

    301

    The Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) online submission tool (OST) will go live starting March 15, 2021.

    Corporations, partnerships, and their authorized filers are required to enroll in the OST by accomplishing the online application form and submitting the required documents at https://ciffs-ost.sec.gov.ph, the SEC said.

    Submissions made through email, mail or courier, and drop boxes in SEC offices will no longer be accepted once the OST goes live, the SEC said.

    The SEC said extension offices outside of the National Capital Region will only accept reports over-the-counter if the filer encountered problems during the enrollment or submission process. The Commission will set up OST Kiosks in SEC offices and other designated areas to provide users with technical assistance from March 15 to Dec. 15, 2021.

    The OST is part of SEC’s initiative to ease transactions and avoid the spread of the new coronavirus disease 2019.
