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 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.”
