Notice Re: Final Process - MSA Compliance Process

NOTICE TO MARKET PARTICIPANTS

Re: Final Process– MSA Compliance Process

On April 23, 2010 the MSA notified stakeholders that it had commenced a stakeholder consultation process in relation to its compliance processes.  At that time the MSA published a ‘Strawdog’ draft upon which interested parties were invited to provide comment.  On June 1, 2010 the MSA published a Draft Process together with its response to the initial stakeholder comments, and invited further comment on the revised Draft.

Having considered the comments received from stakeholders, the MSA is now publishing a final version of the Process as well as a formal response to comments received on the Draft Process.

Final Process

MSA Response to Stakeholder Comments

This step completes the Stakeholder consultation on the MSA compliance process.  The final Process will be located in the ‘Processes’ section of the MSA website.

We appreciate your participation in these matters.

Yours truly,
