Section 405: Unlawful Representations Concerning Registration or Exemption

Section 405. (a) Neither (1) the fact that an application for registration under Part II or a registration statement under Part III has been filed nor (2) the fact that a person or security is effectively registered constitutes a finding by the secretary that any document filed under this chapter is true, complete, and not misleading. Neither any such fact nor the fact that an exemption or exception is available for a security or a transaction means that the secretary has passed in any way upon the merits or qualifications of, or recommended or given approval to, any person, security, or transaction.

(b) It is unlawful to make, or cause to be made, to any prospective purchaser, customer, or client any representation inconsistent with subsection (a).
