ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the corporate governance listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Nasdaq. Financial Executives Research Foundation (FEI) has received numerous requests from FEI members for examples of audit and compensation committee charters. These requests are a direct result of new listing standards issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), NYSE and Nasdaq. In November 2003, the SEC approved the proposed corporate governance listing standards of the NYSE and Nasdaq. Among other items, the NYSE listing standards require companies to adopt corporate governance guidelines and make them available on their Web sites. NYSE standards also include additional requirements for a company's audit, compensation and nominating committees.
