The SFC Codes and Guidelines are maintained by Thomson Reuters Governance, Risk and Compliance, which uses Accelus, an intelligent information platform, to organise the materials for greater accessibility; in particular note that the site sets out versions to show the history of amendments, and differences between versions are highlighted in blue; and that text that is repealed is replaced with an ellipsis (...).

In the case of discrepancies between HTML and PDF versions of SFC rules, the PDF version prevails.
