Stock Exchange Notices and guidance


Rules of the London Stock Exchange ("the rules")
 
The rules are updated from time to time.  Amendments to the rules are notified to the market through Stock Exchange Notices and are incorporated into a revised version of the rules. The revised rules are published on the effective date of the rule change (which is noted in the associated Stock Exchange Notice and on the front cover of the rules).  All amendments to the rules have their effective date and the reference number of the associated Stock Exchange Notice noted in the text.
 
Go to the Rules of the London Stock Exchange for the latest version of the rules.

 
Stock Exchange Notices
 
Stock Exchange Notices are issued throughout the year and contain information on a number of regulatory issues.  These can include the consultation and confirmation of proposed changes to the rules, as described above.  They may also contain regulatory and operational information and guidance in relation to specific market issues.  Go to Stock Exchange Notices to view notices issued by the Exchange.
 
Market Matters

The London Stock Exchange has in the past issued a number of Compliance Updates. These took the form of newsletters containing brief, specific articles/commentary intended to assist compliance officers and other personnel who have responsibility for their member firm’s compliance with the Rules of the London Stock Exchange. Announcements about the publication of new Compliance Updates were emailed to individuals who had registered to receive such notifications via the Exchange’s website.  

In June 2016, the Exchange replaced ‘Compliance Update’ with ‘Market Matters’, moving from a newsletter to the online publication of individual articles on a dedicated webpage. Market Matters articles do not constitute formal exchange guidance; this is communicated via Stock Exchange Notices and/or incorporated within the rules. Market Matters articles are intended to give examples of the kind of behaviour the Exchange is focusing on from a regulatory perspective; outline the lessons to be learned from market events or from Exchange disciplinary action; and provide commentary on various aspects of compliance with Exchange rules and related matters.

To subscribe to Market Matters, please follow the link on the Market Matters page.  

Member firms with queries regarding the Rules, Stock Exchange Notices or Market Matters should contact the Rules & Compliance team on +44 (0)20 7797 2190 or STX 32190.
