TOKYO -- The Tokyo Stock Exchange plans to establish new rules next year that will clearly delineate the steps necessary for restarting the equity trading system in the event of a crash.

The TSE on Friday held its first session of a conference with market participants to discuss how to prevent a reoccurrence of the unprecedented system blackout earlier this month. The same day, agents from the Financial Services Agency, Japan's financial watchdog, initiated an on-site investigation of the bourse.
