Ukraine Expands the List of Commodities Traded on Commodities Exchanges

On 26 July 2022, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine (the “CMU”) expanded[1] the list of commodities that must be traded exclusively on commodities exchanges.

The updated list includes the following commodities:

  • Natural gas, except for the gas produced by Naftogas;
  • Timber (lumber);
  • Crude oil;
  • Gas condensate; and
  • Liquefied gas.

We note that natural gas has in fact not been subject to these requirements since 1 May 2022.

While the National Securities and Stock Market Commission of Ukraine (the “NSSMC”) encourages the companies to operate in compliance with the Resolution, the NSSMC understands the concerns and has decided not to enforce the Resolution for one month from its adoption. The business community will have time to get access to/authorisation on commodities exchanges.

More information on the new capital and commodities markets reform is in our earlier publication.

[1] Updates to CMU Resolution No. 1433 dated 30 December 2021 “On Approval of the List of Commodities that are Subject to Mandatory Trading on Regulated Commodities Exchanges” (the “Resolution”) by virtue of Resolution No. 834.
