The Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday warned Chinese companies not to violate legal and audit requirements as they switch to auditors based in the U.S. to comply with a law that threatens to delist the businesses from American stock exchanges.

It prohibits trading in companies whose auditors cannot be inspected by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board—the U.S. audit watchdog overseen by the SEC—for three consecutive years.
