SEC No-Action Letters

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is often asked to provide written interpretations of their statutes as they relate to specific transactions proposed by corporations, investors, broker/dealers, mutual funds, insurance companies, banks and attorneys. These responses are called “no-action” or interpretative letters. CCH has collected over 60,000 of these letters dating back to 1971 in its SEC No-Action Letters reporter, making them instantly available in electronic form.
