Regulators Resources

Governments carefully regulate and monitor publicly-traded companies. The United States created the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 1934 to oversee the stock exchanges and enforce federal law relating to financial securities. Several other regulatory bodies, both inside and outside the U.S., perform similar functions. Familiarize yourself with the financial legislation and regulatory requirements relating to public companies before you go public.
