CorpFin to Accept SEC Electronic Signatures Before New Rule Effective Date

By George Wilson


As we discussed in this post, on November 17, 2020, the SEC adopted a Final Rule — ­­­­­­­ “Electronic Signatures in Regulation S-T Rule 302.”


The Final Rule will not be effective until it is published in the Federal Register.  However, on November 20, 2020, CorpFin announced, “the staff will not recommend the Commission take enforcement action with respect to the requirements of Rule 302(b) in advance of such time provided that a signatory complies with all of the requirements of amended Rule 302(b).”
