The Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries (HKICS) released the Guide on 'Directors’ Induction: An Overview'.
During the past few years, there have been successive revisions to the Listing Rules (Rules) and the Corporate Governance Code (Code) thereunder. It was in 2012, through a combination of Rule 3.28 and section F to the Code that the status of the company secretary of listed issuers was fully recognized, with their appointment and termination requiring physical Board meetings of listed issuers. The company secretary is now truly regarded as a member of the senior management team.
As our members have organised various inductions for directors, we have canvassed their views as to what they feel as important to share with the profession. This Guide on Directors’ Induction (An Overview) relates to the company secretary’s roles and responsibilities under Section F to ‘facilitate induction and professional development of directors’.
