SEC 17 Compliance

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Rules 17a-3, 17a-4 and 17ad-7 were implemented under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and outline records archiving rules for the securities industry. In years past, these SEC rules covered only paper records, but today, they include electronic documents as well.

Most members of the national securities exchange, brokers, dealers and businesses in the securities industry must comply with SEC 17. The regulations specify which documents should be stored, including securities sales records, ledgers reflecting assets and liabilities, securities borrowed or loaned, dividends and interest received and more. Retention schedules and document management requirements are also part of the regulation.

Originals of all business communications and copies, whether by paper, by email or through audit reporting, must be indexed, easily searchable and stored on unalterable media.  Additionally, securities companies are required to ensure the accessibility, security and integrity of their records. The SEC may examine a business’ document management system for compliance, and violators can face stiff penalties, which can include millions of dollars in fines. As a result, companies need systems that:

  • Preserve all business records on a non-rewriteable, non-erasable media.
  • Maintain searchable and readily available document storage.
  • Verify the accuracy of their archiving system and document management processes.

EDM Enables SEC 17 Compliance

MuniMetriX Systems Electronic Document Management (EDM) technology provides comprehensive document storage and management capabilities that enable SEC 17 compliance and enhance operational efficiency. Brokers, dealers and securities companies use ImageSilo®, the on-demand EDM service and PaperVision® Enterprise to address SEC 17 regulations, reduce records management costs and increase productivity. In fact, they prefer MuniMetriX Systems’ technology because it allows the choice between managing information on-premise or on-demand and offers additional components like email management, workflow and print stream processing.

AIIM study results state financial service companies identified improved compliance, increased productivity and increased customer satisfaction as the three most important potential benefits of EDM systems.

“We had wanted to go paperless for ten to fifteen years, but it was too expensive. We kept shopping for document management software until we found PaperVision® Enterprise. It has made our transition an affordable one that was easy to implement. In addition, PaperVision® Enterprise allowed us to trade administrative expenses for revenue generating investments.”

System Auditing and Compliance

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Gramm-Leach Bliley Act and other laws require companies to monitor disclosures, explain how customer information is shared and validate internal security controls and compliant procedures.
