The China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) released the Decision on Amending the Rules for Establishment of Securities Companies with Foreign Equity (“Securities Decision”) and the Decision on Amending the Trial Regulations for Establishment of Subsidiaries by Securities Companies (“Subsidiaries Decision”) on October 16, 2012, which took effect on the same day.

It is explicitly provided that this Securities Decision also applies to investments made by investors from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan securities companies.
Other important amendments to the Subsidiaries Decision are 1) that for subsidiaries of a securities company intending to expand their scope of business activities, the mandatory requirement on the continuous operation has been reduced from five consecutive years to two consecutive years and 2) that non-violation records of such subsidiaries have been reduced from the last three years to the last two years.
