The New Inspection Regime

Protecting Personal Information on the Companies Registry

With a new inspection regime implemented under the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance, there are additional safeguards to the personal data of directors and other relevant individuals who appear on the Companies Registry. Phase 1 of the new inspection regime took effect on 23 August 2021 and companies are now allowed to withhold the usual residential address (URA) of their directors and full identification number (IDN) of both the directors and company secretaries from public inspection of their internal private registers. Instead, only the correspondence addresses (CA) and partial IDN will be made available to the public. Other levels of protection will be accorded by the law upon the next two phases of the new inspection regime.
