United States SEC extends comment period for proposed resources entity disclosure rules
02 Feb 2011
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has extended the comment period for three Dodd-Frank Act proposed rules, Disclosure of Payments by Resource Extraction Issuers, Mine Safety Disclosure, and Conflict Minerals.
As noted in our earlier story, the disclosures proposed are broadly consistent with the 'Publish What You Pay' coalition (PWYP) proposals included in IASB Discussion Paper DP/2010/1 Extractive Activities.
The proposals are available on the SEC website.
