SEC proposes rules to modernize its administrative proceedings

  • SEC document Image

Sep 25, 2015

The SEC has issued two proposed rules to modernize its administrative proceedings.

The proposed amendments constitute three primary changes:

  • Adjustment of “the timing of administrative proceedings, including by extending the time before a hearing occurs in appropriate cases.”
  • Permitting “parties to take depositions of witnesses as part of discovery.”
  • Requiring “parties in administrative proceedings to submit filings and serve each other electronically, and to redact certain sensitive personal information from those filings.”

For more information, see the press release and proposed rules (34-75976 and 34-75977) on the SEC’s Web site.
