4.6. Innovations of the International Organization of Securities Commissions and Their Implementation in Russian Law

Track: 4. Investments. Finance


International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), of which the Russian Federation is a member and which determines the basic mechanisms of the securities market regulation and countering unfair practices (market manipulation, insider trading), has proposed to extend the financial market regulators’ mandate in terms of countering unfair practices and ensuring stability of the financial market, namely: to allow the regulator to receive records of bidders’ phone conversations; to provide access to IP addresses of bidders; to allow the regulator to call private individuals having information on unfair practices for explanations, etc.

Abiding by the IOSCO requirements makes a jurisdiction open, sophisticated and transparent, as well as facilitates cooperation and data exchange between countries during investigations of legal violations at the financial market. However, the said proposals partially infringe upon the citizens’ right to secrecy of communication and other personal rights.

The session will address possible mechanisms of adoption of the new IOSCO requirements into the Russian legislation.
