The SEC announced that beginning on April 19, 2012, the SEC staff will begin to republish via EDGAR Commission orders pursuant to Exchange Act Section 12(j) revoking a company’s Exchange Act registration and Commission stop orders pursuant to Securities Act Section 8.

Although these orders are currently posted on the SEC’s website as administrative orders, they have not been posted on EDGAR. The SEC staff will begin with the most recently issued orders and go backwards through 2004. New orders will be published on EDGAR when issued going forward.


Publishing on EDGAR will allow a viewer to see the order in the context of all of a company’s public flings. In addition, the SEC will note in search results if a company’s Exchange Act registration has been revoked.
