It also evaluates reports and announcements on companies whose securities are traded on the Athens Exchange.
It also monitors the implementation of legislation, in cases of a public offering or admission to trading on a regulated market, including the audit and/ or the evaluation on the content of information and factsheets, advertisements, notifications, statements or announcements to attract the public to invest to any kind of securities.
It controls the final use of funds raised from the capital market, in conjunction with those mentioned in the relevant prospectus, the decisions of the competent bodies and their communications.
It also monitors the implementation of the regulation on underwriting and oversees the legislative implementation of public proposals.
Finally, in the exercise of its powers, it conducts temporary, special or general controls.
