Rules and Regulations

Nasdaq Stockholm

- Stockholmsbörsen

Nasdaq Stockholm is a regulated market licensed in Sweden. Trading at Nasdaq Stockholm is governed by the Issuer Rules, the Member Rules and the Warrant Rulebook. Nasdaq Stockholm also operates First North, an MTF in Sweden that is subject to a separate Rulebook.

Market Abuse Regulation

On 3 July 2016, the Market Abuse Regulation, MAR entered into force. MAR is a new EU-wide regime to prevent market abuse. MAR is a fundamental framework for the obligation of issuers to disclose insider information, something that has previously been governed by national law and exchange regulation.

We invited the lawyers Erik Sjöman (Vinge), Patrik Marcelius (Mannheimer Swartling) och Björn Kristiansson (Hannes Snellman) to discuss these changes together with our Head of European Surveillance, Joakim Strid and moderator Karin Ydén, Director of Issuer Surveillance in Stockholm. Learn more about the upcoming changes and their effect for issuers in our Q&A video (in Swedish).

Issuer Rules

- Regler emittenter

Listing requirements are a vital part of a listing. There are requirements to become listed as well as ongoing requirements that need to be fulfilled while the company is listed. Disclosure rules regulate the procedures on when and how listed companies disclose information to the market. All information that is likely to materially influence the valuation of a listed company must be published in a way that ensures that it reaches all market participants simultaneously. The rules for issuers with regards to shares are in substance harmonized between all four (4) exchanges, especially the listing requirement and disclosure rules.

The Swedish Code of Corporate Governance (the Code) is considered an expression of generally accepted  practice in the Swedish securities market. A listed company shall conduct its business in accordance with generally accepted practice in the Swedish securities market. As a result the Code is indirectly a part of the rules of Nasdaq Stockholm.
