On October 1, 2015, the SEC announced the launch of a new rulemaking database to provide for greater transparency into the SEC’s rulemaking process. Unlike the structure of the current SEC website, the new database allows users to sort rules by date, status (e.g., proposed, completed, etc.), and SEC division (e.g., Investment Management, Trading and Markets, etc.).

The SEC announcement of the new database is available at: http://www.sec.gov/news/statement/chair-whiteannouncement-rulemaking-index.html and the SEC rulemaking index is available at: http://www.sec.gov/rules/rulemaking-index.shtml.
