The Staff of the Division of Corporation Finance released guidance regarding the process for seeking extensions of confidential treatment.  There is a new short form application for issuers that have previously received a confidential treatment order.  Here is a link to the new short form application:  The one-page document requires that the issuer affirm that the most recently considered application continues to be true, complete and accurate regarding the information for which the applicant continues to seek confidential treatment.  The short form is an alternative to the traditional application for extensions of orders and it cannot be used to add new exhibits or to make new redactions.
