Nord Pool Spot AS has found it necessary to make an amendment to Appendix 6; ‘Market Conduct Rules’.
In chapter 3 of the Appendix 6 – ‘Prohibition on Insider Trading and Duty of Confidentiality’ – the section 3.3 will be removed from the Rulebook.
The rules and exceptions applicable for participants holding inside information are found in the existing sections 3.1, 3.2 and 3.4-3.6. These are also applicable for participants who are Elbas Market Makers.
Subsequent paragraphs after the removed section 3.3 will be renumbered as a result of the change.
The change will take effect from 1 November 2007.
In addition a minor adjustment will be made in Appendix 10 - ‘Definitions’ - removing one of two similar definitions of ‘Clearing Customer’.
