      Without limitation of the Commission's general powers and functions in relation to listing matters, the Commission has the following powers and functions in relation to HKEC's application for listing and status as a listed issuer:

      (1) the powers and functions that the Exchange has in relation to an applicant for listing. The Exchange must not exercise powers or perform functions in relation to HKEC's own application, except in the case of any action or decision in respect of which the Commission states in writing that it is satisfied that a conflict of interest will not arise if that action were taken or decision made by the Exchange;
      (2) if HKEC's application for listing is approved, the powers and functions that the Exchange has in relation to a listed issuer, except the power to make listing rules. The Exchange must not exercise powers or perform functions that this rule gives to the Commission, except in the case of any action or decision in respect of which the Commission states in writing that it is satisfied that a conflict of interest will not arise if that action were taken or decision made by the Exchange.
