7.17A

In the case of the accountants’ report for an overseas issuer, such report will not normally be regarded as acceptable unless the relevant financial statements have been audited to a standard comparable to that required by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants or by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board of the International Federation of Accountants.

Note:    A list of alternative overseas auditing standards that are considered comparable to the standards set out in this rule is published on the Exchange’s website, as amended from time to time.
