SIX Exchange Regulation

An autonomous and independent body within SIX, SIX Exchange Regulation regulates and monitors participants and issuers of SIX Swiss Exchange. One of its many tasks is the listing of securities on SIX exchanges.

The SIX Exchange Regulation division executes the tasks assigned to it under federal law and under the rules issued by the Regulatory Board. It also monitors compliance with both the law and the rules. Where the rules grant it such authority, it imposes sanctions and makes sanction proposals.

The Chairman of the Board of Directors of SIX Group Ltd, the supervisory authority and, where appropriate, the competent public prosecutors are informed where violations of the law or other irregularities are suspected. 

The business area SIX Exchange Relations is split into two departments: Listing & Enforcement is responsible for the rules governing issuers, while Surveillance & Enforcement oversees trading.
