The Corporations Amendment (Financial Market Supervision) Act 2010 provides for a new class of IR Plus rules called market integrity rules. These rules have been drafted by ASIC and apply to market operators, market participants and other prescribed entities and financial products traded on the relevant markets.

The following ASIC market integrity rules were made on 1 August 2010 and are based on legislation and regulations as at 1 August 2010. ASIC's approach in making market integrity rules has been to not change the substance of the pre-existing obligations that apply to participants of the relevant markets at this time.

ASIC is responsible for supervising compliance with these rules.

The relevant documents are the ASIC Market Integrity Rules (IR Plus market), ASIC Market Integrity Rule Appendix (Comparison of IR Plus Business Rules and ASIC Market Integrity Rules IR Plus Market) and Regulatory Guide 215: Guidance on ASIC market integrity rules for NSXA and IR Plus markets.
