Regulatory Approach/Philosophy

In striving to build a market of quality and integrity, we are guided by the 10 Regulatory Principles to achieve the following goals: investor protection; high standards of business conduct by listed issuers and brokers; and efficient and effective regulation.


We have clear, comprehensive and accessible rules which govern, among others, the listing of issuers and products on our markets, and the obligations of the issuers post-listing, the trading, clearing and settlement of our products, the admission and post admission obligations of our participants.

As the frontline regulator of the Malaysian capital market, we have a duty to maintain a fair and orderly market in the securities and derivatives that are traded through its facilities. The regulatory functions of the Exchange are performed and managed by the Regulation Functional Group which is helmed by the Chief Regulatory Officer.

Market Surveillance

Our underlying philosophy in managing market orderliness lies in addressing market misconduct. We consider both quantitative and qualitative criteria when deciding on the appropriate policies, approaches and actions to be taken to address market orderliness.


We take a very strict view of breaches to our Business Rules and Listing Requirements and undertake enforcement proceedings and actions according to the severity of the breach as these infractions have the potential to undermine investors' rights and protection.
