New timing rules calculator – watch this space!

Published 1 October 2016

Interpreting and applying the Code’s timing rules can be difficult. The Panel’s Guidance Note on Timing Rules in the Code is recognised as a useful resource for interpreting the relevant rules, and now the Panel is working on a digital solution to significantly enhance the Guidance Note’s usefulness. A timing rules calendar is being created for the Panel’s website. The calculator will allow users to enter the relevant Code rules and transaction dates, and see the corresponding dates and deadlines in a real time calendar that recognises weekends and public holidays. The Panel expects this to be a useful tool to help those with Code obligations to comply with the selected rules. Watch this space.
