Market Abuse Rules and Guidance published by the Central Bank

01 July 2016 Press Release

As of 3 July 2016 the new legislative framework governing market abuse in the EU will apply. This framework replaces the existing Market Abuse Directive.  Accordingly, the Central Bank has today published updated Market Abuse Rules and Guidance, which are effective 3 July 2016.

The updated Rules and Guidance are available on the Central Bank’s website.

Director of Markets Supervision, Gareth Murphy, said: “The introduction of a new Market Abuse Regime is an important step in making markets fairer and protecting investors, especially when technology is changing the way markets function.  These new rules cover a broader range of markets and provide regulators with enhanced powers to tackle market abuse."
