Legislation in the United States that formed the first major federal regulation of the securities trade.

A landmark securities law intended to improve the flow of information to potential investors in new security issues and to prohibit certain selling practices relating to those issues.

Secondary issues, private offerings, and certain small issues are usually exempted from requirements of the Act.
