Process for incorporating future changes to market manuals

Market manuals are subject to change as the market evolves. The process for revision is based on that required in section 8, Chapter 1 of the Market Rules:

  • the proposed modifications are submitted to the Rules Change Panel (RCP) for review,
  • the RCP makes a recommendation to the EMC Board as to whether or not the proposed modifications should be adopted,
  • the EMC Board makes a decision, and
  • the EMA grants final approval.

The approved modifications come into force ten business days after their publication on the EMC website, or on a date specified in the approved modification proposal.
