Hi Doug and Loyd ...

The most severe "penalty" for non-compliance would be risk to
your enterprise's share price. If Sarbanes-Oxley auditors author an
unsatisfactory report, those conclusions will be printed in your
annual report. Here's an essay about the subject entitled:

          "What shareholders should know about the
            exploding responsibility for data integrity"

Here are two affordable products that help iSeries shops get prepared
for their SOX audit:

   "Bill of Health" Security Diagnostics and Rx for OS/400:

   "Stitch-in-Time" OS/400 Database Integrity:

Beware that you wait until the last minute. Our FYE is Dec 31, we must be in
compliance by Sep 30 per our corporate office. No major system upgrades,
changes, or implementation allowed without waiver in Q4.

SOX is far reaching, but primarily affects financial systems (purchasing,
inventory control, GL/AP/AR) and some HR systems.

Does anyone know if there is a date when companies must be SOX compliant?

Also, what are the penalties, if any, for non-compliance?

Our auditors are driving us nuts.  I'd love to put them off until next
Spring, or just pay the fines like you can do with OSHA if they are not to
