The Securities and Exchange Commission's Advisory Committee on Smaller Public Companies has announced plans for a two-day meeting in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 24 and 25.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss possible recommendations for inclusion in the committee's final report to the SEC.

The meeting will be held at the SEC's headquarters in Washington, D.C. The public is welcome to attend the meeting on both days. Both sessions also will be audio Webcast on the SEC Web site, www.sec.gov .

The advisory committee was established by the SEC to examine the impact of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and other federal securities laws on smaller companies. The committee has been holding hearings in various parts of the country since June 2005. At a hearing held in New York on Oct. 14, the committee indicated that it was at the end of its fact-finding phase and entering its report-writing period; its final report is due in April 2006.
