    • Disclosure
    • Trading and settlement
    • Administration

    The Listing Rules are designed to safeguard the interests of listed companies, ensure transparency through the disclosure of important information, and regulate the stock market. These rules are enforceable under the Corporations Act and apply to listed entities and their associates.

    In addition to the Listing Rules, listed companies must also comply with additional regulations under the Corporations Act, including requirements for financial reporting, auditor rotation, shareholder meetings, director appointments and remuneration, and related party transactions. The process of listing on the ASX can be lengthy, complex, and expensive, and may require companies to restructure their corporate structure, operations, and internal governance procedures.
