On Wednesday 7 November, 13.30 – 14.30pm 13.30 – 14.30pm, Michelle East is chairing Workshop WS2.2 Do you need a licence to participate in carbon markets?.

Michelle is joined by panelists Craig McBurnie, Senior Specialist – Strategic Policy, ASIC; Timothy Thomas, Senior Analyst & Lawyer, Registry Services & Licensing, ASIC; Su-King Hii, Principal, Innovest Consulting; Matt Daley, Partner, Clayton Utz; John Kelly, Managing Director, Consult Insurance Solutions; and Claire Wivell Plater, Managing Director, The Fold Legal.

Whether someone trading, broking and advising in relation to carbon credits needs an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) requires careful consideration of their activities. For domestic and international participants there may be exemptions, for others their activities could constitute a breach of the regulations.

This is your chance to hear directly from the regulators about the requirements to hold an Australian Financial Services Licence and from a panel of service providers who have expertise in assisting organisations with planning for and obtaining their AFSL.

After a brief introduction from ASIC, we will hand over to you. We are seeking questions from the audience. If you can’t be there or would prefer to keep a low profile, send me your questions beforehand to:meast@certaintycompliance.com.au
