Dual filing

The dual filing arrangement has been in effect since 1 April 2003.

Dual filing refers to the requirements of the Securities and Futures (Stock Market Listing) Rules (SMLR) under which listing applicants and listed companies must file applications and disclosure materials with the SFC, via The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong. As such, we can exercise enforcement powers against persons issuing false or misleading corporate information.

Since 2017, we raise enquiries with an applicant directly when we vet listing applications to determine whether an application gives rise to any concerns under the SMLR. Under section 6(2) of the SMLR, the SFC is empowered to object to a listing application. Where it does not object to a listing application, the SFC may impose conditions under section 6(3)(b) of the SMLR. In those cases, each listing applicant would disclose in its prospectus the conditions that are being imposed by the SFC. The SFC imposed conditions on the following listing applications.

United Company Rusal Limited

Better Home Group Holdings Co., Limited
