SEC Launches Rulemaking Database

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has launched a rulemaking database. “Our rules provide important standards against which we assess compliance in our examinations and hold wrongdoers accountable in our enforcement actions. I am therefore pleased to announce the launch of a new database on our website that will provide enhanced transparency into this vital activity, available at http://www.sec.gov/rules/rulemaking-index.shtml. This online resource, which will be updated regularly, will bring together information about our rules in a single site where the public can more easily follow specific rules or rulemaking programs. The objective is to give the public ‘one-stop shopping’ for better understanding the development of new rules.”
