Action before or following an investigation may include, for example, referring some issues or information to other authorities or SROs for consideration, including where another authority or SRO appears to be better placed to take action. For example, when considering whether to use its powers to conduct formal investigations into market misconduct, the CBB will take into account whether another regulatory authority or an SRO is in a position to investigate and deal with the matters of concern (as far as a licensed exchange or market operator or licensed clearing house and depository is concerned, the CBB will consider the extent to which the licensed exchange or market operator, or licensed clearing house and depository has adequate and appropriate powers to investigate and deal with a matter itself). Equally, in some cases the CBB may investigate and/or take action in parallel with another domestic or international authority or SRO.
