Company Secretary to mandatorily act as Compliance officer in Listed Entities: SEBI

Market regulator SEBI has mandated the appointment of Company Secretary as compliance officer for the purpose of the newly-framed listing regulations. This is a welcome move by SEBI as it will strengthen the compliance ecosystem in listed companies, SNAnanthasubramannian, former President of the Company Secretaries Institute, said. Besides fixing responsibility of compliance of listing regulations on the Company Secretary, the secretarial audit report requiring verification and reporting compliance/non-compliance of listing regulations by practicing Company Secretaries under the Company Law, will over time, facilitate better regulatory oversight and enhance improved compliancemechanism.
