  • The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has approved the compensation committee listing standards contemplated by the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). The new listing standards establish independence requirements for compensation committee members and require compensation committees to consider factors relevant to potential conflicts of interests on the part of compensation consultants, legal advisers and other compensation advisers.
