ASIC class order regarding naming of debentures

ASIC has released Consultation Paper 344 Remaking ASIC class order on when debentures can be called secured notes (CP 344) proposing to continue its class order relating to how debentures may be described. The class order is due to expire on 1 April 2022.

A new instrument would continue the relief currently given by [CO 12/1482] When debentures can be called secured notes. 

CP 344 invites submissions as to:

  • whether the class order is currently operating effectively and efficiently;
  • whether the conditions of relief should remain unchanged; and
  • whether the remade legislative instrument should remain in force for 10 years or for a shorter period of time.
