In March, we reported that the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) and Investment Industry Organization of Canada (IIROC) were seeking feedback on the appropriate regulatory framework for crypto-asset trading platforms. That consultation closed earlier this month, and now the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) just published a consultation paper (Consultation Paper) on the same subject. It’s a useful reference document to help you stay informed on global regulatory trends globally in this area. Among other things, the Consultation Paper outlines recent studies and regulatory initiatives in major financial markets, discusses key considerations for capital markets regulators, and summarizes the results of its survey of IOSCO member regulators in more than forty jurisdictions (including Canada). The consultation closes on July 29.
