The Sarbanes–Oxley Act of 2002 or SOX, is a United States federal law that set new or improved standards for all U.S. public company boards, management and public accounting firms. The bill was enacted as a reaction to a number of key corporate and accounting scandals including those affecting Enron, Tyco International, Adelphia, Peregrine Systems and WorldCom. These scandals, which cost investors billions of dollars when the share prices of affected companies collapsed, shook public confidence in the nation's securities markets.
There is still controversy over the perceived benefits and costs of SOX. Opponents of the bill claim it has reduced America's international competitive edge against foreign financial service providers, saying SOX has introduced an excessively complex regulatory environment into U.S. financial markets. Supporters of the Act say that SOX has been a "blessing" for improving the confidence of fund managers and other investors with regard to the veracity of corporate financial statements. After 10 years it is a good time to reassess the Act and how companies may respond to the Act’s requirements to reduce risk of material misstatement and fraud.
