CP 118 Responsible handling of rumours
Released 15 September 2009. Comments closed 9 November 2009.
This consultation paper proposes some basic principles for the handling of rumours, whether positive or negative. It sets out ASIC’s proposed guidelines to assist Australian financial services (AFS) licensees when they are the recipients of rumours.
We are seeking views from the market, including AFS licensees (in particular market participants and those who deal in or advise on securities) on our proposed approach.
