Market infrastructure licensees

ASIC is committed to market integrity and a fair, orderly and transparent market.

ASIC is responsible for the supervision of operators of financial markets, clearing and settlement (CS) facilities, derivative trade repositories (DTRs) and market participants.  

As part of our role, we:

  • advise the Minister on applications for new market, CS facility and DTR licences and changes to licensees' operating rules
  • make market integrity rules and supervise compliance with these rules, and
  • supervise trading on Australia's domestic licensed markets.

These responsibilities supplement our other responsibilities for enforcing laws against misconduct on Australia's financial markets and supervising Australian financial services (AFS) licensees.
