Inaugural Roundtable of the Financial Reporting Series Entitled “Uncertainty in Financial Statements: How Much To Recognize and How Best To Communicate It”
The Commission staff will hold a public roundtable discussion to consider financial statement measurements (and associated disclosures) that incorporate judgments about future events. The discussion will be open to the public with seating on a first-come, first-served basis. Members of the public may also listen by webcast on the SEC Web site at http://www.sec.gov. The roundtable discussion will take place in the Multipurpose Room (Room L-006) at the SEC Headquarters located at 100 F Street, NE., Washington, DC. Feedback is welcomed regarding any of the topics to be addressed at the roundtable.
Registration of Security-Based Swap Dealers and Major Security-Based Swap Participants
Section 764(a) of Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act'') requires the Securities and Exchange Commission (``Commission'') to issue rules to provide for the registration of security-based swap dealers (``SBS Dealers'') and major security-based swap participants (collectively, ``SBS Entities''). Pursuant to this requirement, the Commission is proposing new Rules 15Fb1-1 through 15Fb6-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the ``Exchange Act''), to provide for the registration of SBS Entities. The Commission is also proposing forms to facilitate registration (and withdrawal from registration) of these entities.
