     The Process Review Panel (PRP) for the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) published its seventh annual report today (April 5), covering the work of the PRP in 2015.

     The Chairman of the PRP, Mr Anthony Chow, said, "In the seventh review cycle, the PRP reviewed seven out of the 81 cases handled by the FRC in 2014. These cases are related to possible auditing and reporting irregularities and possible non-compliance with accounting requirements in relation to listed entities in Hong Kong.

     "After reviewing these cases and considering the reports by the FRC staff, the PRP concluded that the FRC had handled the cases in accordance with its internal procedures. During the review process, the PRP suggested a recommendation to further improve the FRC's procedures. We are glad to note that the FRC welcomes our recommendation and will consider appropriate follow-up action.

     "We are grateful for the co-operation and full support rendered by the FRC in facilitating the work of the Panel."
