PRC Securities Regulations Examination Sessions to be held in Hong Kong in May 2016

Hong Kong, 24 March 2016 – The Hong Kong Securities and Investment Institute (HKSI Institute) announced that the forthcoming PRC Securities Regulations Examination (the Examination) for Hong Kong professionals will be held in Hong Kong on 21 May 2016.

With the implementation of the Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA) between the Mainland and Hong Kong, Hong Kong professionals in the securities industry are offered a fast track opportunity to obtain the required industry qualification to practice in Mainland’s financial market. Under CEPA, the Securities Association of China (SAC) has developed the Examination for Hong Kong professionals, defined as Hong Kong permanent residents holding or having held a relevant license issued by Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission within the last three years, who can now take an examination on the laws and regulations of the Mainland.

Upon passing, these professionals are eligible to apply for the corresponding industry qualification from the SAC, subject to any other requirements of the Mainland.  They will also be exempted from taking other technical examinations.  Once all other requirements of the Mainland are fulfilled, they will be able to apply for the corresponding practising qualification in the Mainland.

The HKSI Institute is the sole dedicated organisation in Hong Kong appointed by the SAC to handle the enrolment and administration of the Examination for Hong Kong professionals.  Enrolment of the Examination on 21 May 2016 (Saturday) starts from 23 March to 6 May 2016, and details and enrolment forms are available from the HKSI Institute counter and website (www.hksi.org/prc_exam) [in Chinese only].
