On July 30, 2021, the SEC issued the Chair’s agenda of rulemaking actions under the Regulatory Flexibility Act for Spring 2021 to the Federal Register. The SEC’s staff completed data collection on May 11, 2021, and information in the agenda was confirmed to be accurate on that day. The agency invites questions and comments related to the agenda and individual agenda entries during a 30-day public review and comment period ending on August 30, 2021.
The Agenda recognizes rules that the SEC intends to consider within the next 12 months that will potentially have a sizeable economic impact on a large number of small entities. A final rule for Filing Fee Disclosure and Payment Methods Modernization is included for Agenda items that have a structured data component (refer to the proposal for this rule).
