ASX ONLINE FORMS USER GUIDE
Page 26 of 69
When a form with a warning is submitted, it will be flagged to ASX operations staff upon submission. ASX will
review the relevant item and the answer, and if it appears to be something that may cause an operational issue or
difficulty, ASX will contact the person nominated by the entity under ASX Listing Rule 12.6 as the person
responsible for communication with ASX, to resolve the issue prior to continuing the processing of the form (i.e.
before release to market).
A list of all the fields in each form which will generate an internal flag for ASX Operations staff is provided in
One type of orange warning message the user may receive is a “concurrency warning” – see “Concurrent
corporate action constraints” below.
It is very important to note that if a user cannot arrive at an answer for an online form that removes an
orange warning, the best course of action is to contact the ASX Listing Compliance adviser for the listed
entity (or equivalent ASX contact in the case of ETF issuers). This is because once the online form has been
submitted to ASX and the ASX Listing Compliance Adviser contacts the listed entity regarding the warning, the
only courses of action available are to release the announcement as is, or delete the announcement. Once the
announcement is deleted the user cannot access the online form again and must create a new online form for re-
submission. On the other hand if the user contacts ASX before the form has been submitted the user has the
option of modifying the draft form (if that is considered the appropriate course of action after discussion with ASX),
and then submitting the form.
Red error messages
Red error messages will prevent the user from reviewing or submitting an online form. Red error messages point
out incorrect information or missing answers to mandatory fields. If you do not populate a mandatory field and
move to another field or part of the form, or, if you give an incorrect answer to a question relating to an ASX
business rule, an error message will appear in red below the relevant field.
