The ESCA implements regulations for the country's securities exchanges and is able to revoke or suspend the listing of securities. Furthermore, the ESCA implements bylaws for the country's brokers. Accordingly, the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange possesses very little regulatory power and would not be considered self-regulatory.
