As a result, the Amendments were deemed approved and consequential changes were made to the LBMA membership categories referenced in both the IIROC Rules and Form 1 for the purposes of margin for gold and silver bullion and/or qualifying an entity as an “acceptable securities location”.

The Amendments will be effective immediately.
