IFSP Branch calls for comments on IOSCO ETF good practices consultation report

On April 6, 2022, the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) published the consultation report titled Exchange Traded Funds – Good Practices for Consideration (the Consultation Report).

The Consultation Report proposes a set of good practices for consideration by regulators, entities responsible for the management of exchange traded funds, and trading venues. The proposed good practices are intended to supplement IOSCO’s 2013 final report titled Principles for the Regulation of Exchange Traded Funds, and are organized under four categories: effective product structuring, disclosure, liquidity provision, and volatility control mechanisms.

Staff of the Investment Funds and Structured Products Branch encourage stakeholders to provide feedback on the proposed good practices and consultation questions to IOSCO using the methods set out in the Consultation Report. The deadline for comment is July 6, 2022.
