(b) Electronic filing. Once you have filed your Form ADV (or any amendments to Form ADV) electronically with the Investment Adviser Registration Depository (IARD), any Form ADV-W you file must be filed with the IARD, unless you have received a hardship exemption under Rule 203-3.
(c) Effective date—upon filing. Each Form ADV-W filed under this section is effective upon acceptance by the IARD, provided however that your investment adviser registration will continue for a period of sixty days after acceptance solely for the purpose of commencing a proceeding under Section 203(e).
(d) Filing fees. You do not have to pay a fee to file Form ADV-W through the IARD.
