SEC Releases Updated Regulatory Flexibility Agenda

12.20.17

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) published its Regulatory Flexibility Agenda last week.  The Agenda bifurcates the SEC’s rulemaking activities into the Proposed Rule Stage and Final Rule Stage list (the “Near-Term Agenda”) and Long-Term Actions list (the “Long-Term Agenda”).  The Near-Term Agenda comprises those rules that the SEC intends to propose and/or finalize in the near term (i.e., approximately the next twelve months) whereas the Long-Term Agenda comprises many more rules for which the SEC has not yet set a timetable to address (notably, the next action for these rules is “to be determined”).

The Near-Term Agenda includes the following noteworthy proposed and final rules.  Final action on all rules having “Final Rule Stage” status is currently forecasted to occur in October 2018.  Each of the links below provides a more in-depth summary of each rule.
