Municipal Securities Document Submission

Municipal securities dealers, municipal advisors, issuers, obligated persons and their designated agents provide the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) with electronic documents to be posted on EMMA. EMMA Dataport is the utility through which submissions of documents and related information are made to MSRB Market Transparency Programs.

  • Submissions by Municipal Advisors

    Municipal advisors must register with the MSRB and comply with all relevant rules governing their market activities.

    Political Contribution Disclosure Submissions

    Municipal securities dealers that underwrite municipal bonds and municipal advisors must submit information to the MSRB on their municipal securities and municipal advisory business and related political contributions to officials of municipal entities, state and local political parties, and bond ballot campaigns. Political contribution information is to be provided for the regulated entity, its municipal finance professionals and municipal advisor professionals, non-MFP and non-MAP executive officers, as well as political action committees controlled by the regulated entity or their municipal finance professionals or municipal advisor professionals.

  • Submissions by Issuers

    Continuing Disclosure Submissions

    Continuing disclosure submissions include event-based and financial disclosures pursuant to continuing disclosure undertakings entered into and consistent with Exchange Act Rule 15c2-12, as well as other continuing disclosure documents concerning municipal securities.

Voluntary disclosures, including disclosure of Bank loans and alternative financings, the timing in which annual financial statements will be disclosed on EMMA, the accounting method by which the annual financial statements are prepared, and a URL link that provides access to additional financial information, are also submitted for posting on the EMMA website.
