Financial Reporting


The SEC proposes rules requiring CEOs and CFOs of publicly traded companies to certify their organizations’ quarterly and annual reports are accurate, timely and contain all the information a “reasonable” investor would consider “significant” ( www.sec.gov/news/press/2002-88.htm ). The rules also would cut to two business days—from the current five to 15—the time companies have to file Form 8-K, reporting a change in their independent auditor, the resignation of directors and other required disclosures. Comments are due August 26.
