Market integrity rules

ASIC is changing the way market integrity rules apply to market operators and participants.

We have phased out market-specific rule books – replacing them with a common set of market integrity rules for securities markets and a common set of market integrity rules for futures markets.

We also publish monthly Regulatory document update tables, which include updates to regulatory documents not notified in media releases. 

Securities markets

From 7 May 2018, ASX, Chi-X, IR Plus, SSX and their participants must comply with a common set of market integrity rules for securities markets.

NSXA and its participants will transition to these rules in stages:

  • From 4 December 2017, NSXA participants using their systems for automated order processing must comply with the ASIC Market Integrity Rules (Securities Markets – Capital) 2017 and Parts 5.5, 5.6 and 5.7 of the ASIC Market Integrity Rules (Securities Markets) 2017.
  • From 5 November 2018, NSXA and its participants must comply with the ASIC Market Integrity Rules (Securities Markets) 2017.
  • From 6 May 2019, all NSXA participants must comply with the ASIC Market Integrity Rules (Securities Markets – Capital) 2017.
