CSRC officially promulgated the rules for supervision and administration of depository receipts under the stock connect scheme between Shanghai Stock Exchange, or SSE, and London Stock Exchange, or LSE, (for trial implementation). The aim of these rules is to regulate the issuance, trading, cross-border conversion, information disclosure, and other activities in relation to depository receipts. The regulations shall be implemented as of the date of promulgation.

- Clarifying the auditing system for the Chinese Depository Receipt (CDR) issuance

- Clarifying the ongoing regulatory requirements for CDRs, including arrangements for quarterly reports and major asset restructurings
