Members of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission will meet next month to consider rules mandated by the 2010 financial regulatory overhaul and a separate law enacted this year to ease the initial public offering process for small companies.
In an announcement posted on the SEC website, the agency said the five commissioners will meet on Aug. 22 to consider rules requiring public companies to disclose whether they use minerals mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo or make payments to overseas governments to develop natural gas. The agency will also consider a separate rule required by the 2012 JOBS Act lifting advertising restrictions on some companies going public.
