Dec 26, 2018

The SEC has posted a plan for operating under the government shutdown. During this period, the agency “will have a very limited number of staff members available . . . to respond to emergency situations involving market integrity and investor protection, including law enforcement.”

The SEC’s Di­vi­sion of Cor­po­ra­tion Finance page notes that “[r]egardless of our operating status, EDGAR will accept registration statements, offering statements and other filings; however, . . . during a shutdown we will not be able to declare registration statements effective nor qualify Form 1-A offering statements.”

For more information, see the following pages on the SEC's Web site:
