The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) is seeking volunteers for a couple of industry advisory committees.

The self-regulatory organization issued requests for nominations to join its Market Rules Advisory Committee (MRAC) and its Fixed Income Advisory Committee (FIAC).

The MRAC provides advice on proposed changes to the trading rules, guidance and other issues involving market regulation. The committee includes representatives from the trading community, institutional investors, legal and compliance experts, and at least one independent rep.

The FIAC, which makes recommendations on regulatory initiatives relating to fixed income trading, includes representatives from primary dealers, other IIROC dealers in the fixed-income business, compliance experts, and independents.

Nominations for both committees are due by Aug. 26 for two-year terms, starting Oct. 4.
