SEC Updates Regulatory Flex Agenda, Tables Dodd-Frank Rules on Executive Compensation Disclosure

The SEC’s semi-annual update of its rulemaking docket was released on July 20. Overall, the SEC has cut its rulemaking agenda by about half under the Trump administration.

  • Pay Versus Performance
  • Listing Standards for Recovery of Erroneously Awarded Compensation (Clawbacks)
  • Disclosure of Hedging by Employees, Officers and Directors
  • Incentive Compensation at Financial Institutions.

Likewise, the Universal Proxy rulemaking was missing.

Still on the docket of proposed rulemakings:

  • Amendments to the XBRL Program
  • Business and Financial Disclosures required by Regulation S-K
  • Guide 3 Bank Holding Company Disclosure
  • Reporting of Proxy Votes on Executive Compensation and Other Matters
  • Concept Release on Possible Revisions to Audit Committee Disclosures
  • Rulemaking to Simplify Regulation S-K Provisions Governing Non-Financial Disclosures
