The current phased approach is commendable. However, for a truly comprehensive and user-friendly
framework, the SECP should prioritize incorporating the missing regulations and addressing specialized
company types in subsequent phases. This would create a single, authoritative reference point for all
company operations in Pakistan.

  • 3. Recommendation: A single regulation categorized into following segments may be introduced: 1. Generally Applicable Regulations 2. Specialized Event Regulations 3. Specialized Companies Regulations 4. Listed Companies Regulations The current phased approach is commendable. However, for a truly comprehensive and user-friendly framework, the SECP should prioritize incorporating the missing regulations and addressing specialized company types in subsequent phases. This would create a single, authoritative reference point for all company operations in Pakistan.
