This working paper reports the findings of a detailed empirical study of 414 enforceable undertakings accepted by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), the corporate, market, finance and credit services regulator from July 1998 to 31 December 2015, a period of 17.5 years.

The study is unique in size, scope and comprehensiveness. It presents a detailed profile of all parties giving enforceable undertakings and the misconduct issues in their undertakings over a 17.5 year period; and breaks new ground by offering the first empirical analysis of the core commitments or undertakings given by parties to enforceable undertakings to rectify their misconduct. It constructs a much needed road map through the maze of regulated firms, activities, misconduct and undertakings involved in ASIC’s deployment of enforceable undertakings.
