In early December 2006 the Group holding company changed its name to ASX Limited and the ASX Group launched its new Australian Securities Exchange brand. The merger and the development of the new ASX Group under the Australian Securities Exchange brand provided the catalyst for the review of the disciplinary and appeal processes across the ASX Group.
