    • 2.3.6

    • 2.3.7

      If a TM in error makes a request to SGX-ST to review an Error Trade, the counterparty TM must provide the TM in error and SGX-ST with its reasons for not agreeing to a mutual cancellation of the Error Trade.

    • 2.3.8

      The timeframe referred to in paragraph 2.3.5 for the TM in error to make the request to review an Error Trade is to minimise the impact of any cancellation on the market. In this regard, SGX-ST reserves the right not to facilitate any request to review an Error Trade if SGX-ST receives the request after the said timeframe.
