The department of a stock exchange responsible for ensuring compliance with listing requirements. These listing requirements mandate that every stock on the exchange have a certain market capitalization, number of shareholders, and/or revenue. Listing requirements exist to enforce stability on the exchange as much as possible. As such, the listing department decides which companies may be listed, which must be delisted, and even which are temporarily exempt from the listing requirements. The listing department is also called the stock list. See also: Listed company, C.
