ASIC online service system improvements



Recent upgrades to our eBusiness portal have included new software which checks to ensure all attachments are safe for our systems.

Users who are lodging documents may experience an error when uploading attachments, particularly attachments where the PDF has been created via scanning from a photocopier/scanner.

You may receive an error message such as:

"For security reasons, we do reject PDF documents containing encrypted data, active content (e.g. JavaScript, PostScript), external references, and PDF documents with attached objects or executables. Please remove Active Content from attachment and then add."

If you do experience this error we advise that you:
  • Use functionality within your PDF product that allows active content to be removed
  • Save the PDF as from your computer and attempt upload again
  • Convert PDF using another source - such as 'save as' from word processor or print options.

You may need to seek your own advice on how to remove Active Content in the event that you continue to experience this issue.
