SEC updates procedure for confidential treatment extensions

  • SEC (US Securities and Exchange Commission) Image

Apr 16, 2019

The SEC has issued a short-form application that registrants can use to request an extension of the time they have been granted for confidential treatment of material contracts.

The application is intended to streamline the extension process for registrants that have previously obtained a confidential treatment order. Such registrants must continue to file extension applications under Rules 406 or 24b-2 if they want to protect confidential information from public release under a Freedom of Information Act request after their original extension order expires.

The short-form application may only be used for exhibits have already been the subject of an order granting confidential treatment and must be filed before the original order expires.

For more information, see the press release on the SEC’s Web site.
