The EEO-1 Component 1 data collection opened on Tuesday, October 31, 2023. The deadline for submitting and certifying 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 report(s) is Tuesday, December 5, 2023. To meet this deadline, the EEOC strongly encourages eligible filers to begin the filing process as soon as possible.

For the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection, the EEOC is continuing to modernize the agency’s EEO data collections and improve the quality of data collected. As part of its ongoing modernization efforts and in response to feedback from filers in prior collections, the EEOC’s Office of Enterprise Data and Analytics (OEDA), which administers the agency’s EEO data collections, has redesigned the EEO-1 Component 1 Instruction Booklet to better meet the needs of filers. The Instruction Booklet consolidates existing filer-support materials, including frequently asked questions (FAQs) and fact sheets, into a single resource for filers and provides additional information to clarify reporting requirements. The updated Instruction Booklet will serve as a “one-stop-shop” containing important information for new and returning filers, and is available here:

Filers should visit the dedicated EEO-1 Component 1 website at to access the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System (OFS), to find supplementary resource materials, and to find the latest updates. Filers needing additional assistance can access the Filer Support Team Message Center upon logging into the OFS.
