Shelf Registration

a registration process that lets an Issuer complete most of the SEC registration procedures (including the filing of a Registration Statement) before it is ready to go to market. The registrant can then “take Securities off the shelf” by filing a Prospectus Supplement when it is ready to launch an offering. See Shelf Takedown.
