The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (Pub. L. No. 107-204, 116 Stat. 745, also known as the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002 and commonly called SOX or SarbOx; July 30, 2002) is a United States federal law passed in response to a number of major corporate and accounting scandals involving prominent companies in the United States. These scandals resulted in a decline of public trust in accounting and reporting practices. The legislation is wide-ranging and establishes new or enhanced standards for all U.S. public company Boards, Management, and public accounting firms.

The Act came in the wake of a series of corporate financial scandals, including those affecting Enron, Tyco International, and Worldcom (now MCI). Named after sponsors Senator Paul Sarbanes (D-Md) and Representative Michael G. Oxley (R-Oh), the Act was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 423-3 and by the Senate 99-0.
