A listing document must contain a responsibility statement:

"This document includes particulars given in compliance with the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited for the purpose of giving information with regard to the issuer. The issuer accepts full responsibility for the accuracy of the information contained in this document and confirms, having made all reasonable enquiries, that to the best of its knowledge and belief there are no other facts the omission of which would make any statement herein misleading."

The Exchange may require appropriate modification to the statement if an issue is guaranteed or issued pursuant to a debt issuance programme. The Exchange may allow others to make the statement but an issuer must seek prior consent for this.
