Feedback sought on NZX Listing Rules review

Following the discussion paper and survey released by NZX in September 2017, NZX has today commenced the second stage of its review of the Main Board/Debt Market Listing Rules and has released an exposure draft of the proposed updated Listing Rules and a consultation paper which sets out the proposed changes and the reasoning for those changes.

NZX is now seeking feedback on the second stage of its Listing Rules review. The closing date for submissions is 5.00pm Friday, 8 June 2018 and submissions can be emailed to

In addition to seeking submissions, NZX also plans to engage directly with market participants to seek additional feedback.

NZX aims to publish the updated Listing Rules by the end of 2018, subject to a transition period.
