The bulk of the provisions stipulated in Russia’s Forex law are about to come into force on October 1, 2015, and the work regarding the implementation of the law and clarifying some of its aspects goes on.
On August 26, 2015, the newly established Expert Board on OTC financial instruments and the protection of rights of individual investors has had its first meeting. Representatives of the Bank of Russia, Russia’s Ministry of Finance and the Centre for Regulation in OTC Financial Instruments and Technologies (CRFIN) took part in the discussions.
