No, a company does not need to pay a fee to disclose information using SASB Standards. All 77 industry-based SASB Standards are available to download free of charge on sasb.org for non-commercial use, such as disclosure to investors or for use in academic research.
Programs are available for commercial uses of the Standards, such as integrating them into investment strategies or reporting software. These fee-based programs help ensure that the businesses that benefit from the Standards help facilitate their maintenance. For more information, please see Licensing use.
