Participation in electronic communications is optional for sponsored holder customers, and ASX is working closely with sponsoring participants to support the introduction of this new service.

To support the launch of the electronic communications, ASX will be making amendments to the ASX Settlement Operating Rule Procedures.

A copy of these amendments are available here. These will become effective on and from the go-live date in December 2021.

The confirmed go-live date will be announced via market notice at the end of November 2021.
