Investopedia explains 'SEC Form U-12-IA'




SEC Form U-12-(I)A was required under Section 12(i) of the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935. Section 12(i) of the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935 made it illegal for any person employed or retained by any registered holding company (or any subsidiary company thereof) to present, advocate or oppose any matter affecting any registered holding company (or any subsidiary company thereof) before Congress, the SEC or the Federal Power Commission without filing the appropriate SEC form(s). The 1935 act was repealed on August 8, 2005 with the passing of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. The act regulated the holding companies of electric and natural gas utilities.
