The interim measures clarify the business scope, scope of lease items, and prohibited businesses or activities of the financial leasing companies.

Additionally, CBIRC issued provisions on implementation procedures of administrative licensing for financial institutions supervised and managed by CBIRC. The provisions cover main procedural issues involved in the process of administrative licensing. The provisions shall come into force as of July 01, 2020.
The interim measures require that the financial leasing companies improve corporate governance, internal control, risk management, and related-party transactions. It strengthens the constraints of regulatory indicators. Some new prudential supervision indicators have been set up, including the proportion of financial leasing assets, fixed income securities investment, and business concentration to promote financial leasing companies to focus on their main businesses and enhance their risk prevention and control capabilities. The measures also set out provisions related to supervision, administration, and legal responsibilities. In the next step, CBIRC will focus to implement the measures and strengthen supervision and guidance.
