Abstract

The United States has led the world for many decades with regard to company disclosure rules and standards; other national company disclosure structures are based largely on the U.S. model. In December 2013 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) indicated that it intended to review Regulation S-K, which contains many important rules governing listed company reporting in the United States. This Article calls for the SEC to maintain its comprehensive approach to corporate disclosure regulation and practice as an essential platform for the future health of global financial markets. This Article highlights the importance of the global leadership of the United States in this regulatory space and the strength of its existing structure by comparing and contrasting the periodic and continuous disclosure rules that apply to companies listed on the major exchanges in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

Keywords: Company Disclosure, Company Information, Regulatory Framework
