Survey of Registration and Disclosure Requirements in International Securities Markets

This survey of the domestic registration and disclosure requirements in the United Kingdom, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Australia, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Canada, and Japan provides a topical overview of the institutions, requirements, and procedures involved in securities trading in foreign markets. While the goal of a unified international securities regulation system may represent the best long-term course for an efficient world-wide system of capital markets, the necessity to conform to domestic securities regulations will remain important in the coming years.
