Market monitoring analyses are provided directly to the Participating Jurisdictions. Each Participating Jurisdiction is responsible for conducting market oversight and retains the authority to enforce the regulation that govern their program.

Any deviation from jurisdiction regulatory requirements or inappropriate market activity may be subject to investigation and prosecution under the laws and regulations of each Participating Jurisdiction’s program.
