Hong Kong’s FRC launches new whistleblowing policy

Joe Pickard, 2 December


RC Whistleblower ensures protection of personal identities.

This is in order to increase their confidence in the security and secrecy of handling of their reports. The FRC has a dedicated Whistleblowing webpage with an online form for submission of Whistleblower reports about potential wrongdoing or misconduct in financial reporting or audits of listed entities.

FRC chair Kelvin Wong said: “As an independent and effective financial regulator, we encourage the public to come forward to report financial misconduct without fear or intervention. Confidence from whistleblowers is pivotal to the FRC’s ability to take proactive regulatory action to protect the public interest.”
