On April 1, the SEC
On April 1, the SEC is holding an open meeting to adopt the audit committee of exchange-listed companies rules. This comes a day after the PCAOB holds a roundtable at the SEC’s HQ in Washington to discuss registration of foreign audit firms (and for which the SEC issued a press release making a big deal of the fact that the SEC Commissioners would also attend the roundtable).
The SEC’s test website for Section 16 filings is up and running – don’t get confused if you play around on the site and it issues warnings that you are about to make a “live” filing. It really doesn’t mean it. The test site is at https://www.onlineforms.edgarfiling.sec.gov/.
For TheCorporateCounsel.net subscribers, we have posted an interview with Ken Winer on SEC enforcement and 3rd party liability at http://www.thecorporatecounsel.net/member/InsideTrack/03_25_03_Winer.htm.
We have also posted sample disclosure committee charters and D&O questionnaires under “Special Features” on the home page – as well as a more recent edition of the SEC Telephone Directory (Sept. 2002 version) at http://www.thecorporatecounsel.net/member/SEC/SEC2002PhoneBook.pdf.
