Mar 20, 2019

On March 20, 2019, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a final rule, “FAST Act Modernization and Simplification of Regulation S-K.”

The final rule is intended to "modernize and simplify certain disclosure requirements in Regulation S-K, and related rules and forms, in a manner that reduces the costs and burdens on registrants while continuing to provide all material information to investors." The overall purpose of the final rule is to increase the transparency of registrants' disclosures while eliminating "repetition and disclosure of immaterial information."
