The Minister of Commerce, the Hon Craig Foss, has released what are likely to be the final set of changes to the Financial Markets Conduct Bill before it becomes law. These are set out in a Supplementary Order Paper (SOP) released today, which will be tabled in Parliament once the House resumes sitting. The SOP can be accessed here.

While the general thrust of the Bill remains the same, the SOP has fine tuned some aspects in response to recent issues, and market participants will need to be aware of these.
