Prior to the introduction of the CTR alternative procedures, the Securities Act Rule 406 and Exchange Act Rule 24b-2 defined the exclusive mechanisms for requesting confidential processing of information contained in key contracts filed in the form of exposures to securities law and stock market law. These rules, which remain available for use, require companies to submit to the SEC a detailed application in which the specific text for which confidential treatment is requested, a justification of the legal basis provided by the Freedom of Information Act for the exemption, as well as an explanation of why disclosure of information on the basis of the facts and circumstances of the case would not be necessary for both the applicant and the protection of the competition. A registrant is also required to indicate an expiration date in his or her TC.

Note that the requirements for hyperlinking built-in hardware are similar to those required for the use of hyperlinks, including the requirement that documents that are hyperlinked be submitted in HTML. Companies are not required to submit “a document modification solely to correct an imprecise hyperlink, unless that hyperlink has been included in a pre-established registration statement, similar to existing requirements for the use of hyperlinks. An imprecise hyperlink alone would not render the registration significantly deficient and would not compromise the eligibility of a filer to use Form S-3, SF-3 or Form F-3.” However, there are some important (and welcome) differences.
Unlike hyperlinks, a company is not required to “correct inaccurate hyperlinks to information introduced by reference to an effective registration statement by incorporating a corrected hyperlink into a subsequent periodic report or subsequent change.” This is because the SEC believes that a correction in this context can only create confusion.
