What Is the SEC Docket?
The SEC Docket provides an ongoing serial record of SEC regulatory and enforcement releases.
The top summary table of the docket indicates the corresponding ranges of release numbers issued during the given date range under the Office of the Secretary's regulatory and content type classification system.

Note that this is a change from the print version, which covered releases from Friday through Thursday in each issue.
The e-docket will be archived on a weekly and year-to-date basis — see archive links in the right column.
