The Publish What You Pay Coalition Urges SEC to Match Global Transparency Standard

April 9, 2014

Publish What You Pay (PWYP), the global network campaigning for greater openness in the extractive sector, urged the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Thursday, March 20, to issue a rule on payment disclosures for oil, gas, and mining companies.

Members of the PWYP coalition, including the Open Society Policy Center, presented their case for a strong rule for Section 1504 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Section 1504) that aligns with the emerging global transparency standard.
