Details :

Every member of the HKIS is required to maintain a high and honourable standard of professional conduct and shall discharge his/her duties in accordance with the highest standard of business ethics as provided under the Bye-Laws and Rules of Conduct of the Institute.

To keep pace with the development of the profession and rapid changes in the socio-economic environment, the General Council considered it necessary to conduct a review of the existing professional conduct and disciplinary related procedures. The review, including implementation of amendments to the Bye-Laws and Rules of Conduct, is aimed at enhancing the existing disciplinary procedures mechanism. Legal advice has been obtained from Senior Counsel who has proposed some amendments to the Bye-Laws and Rules of Conduct.

A Working Group on Review of Disciplinary Procedures (‘Working Group’) was set up to study the proposed amendments as raised by the Senior Counsel. The recommendation by the Working Group to accept the legal advice as provided by the Senior Counsel was endorsed by the General Council.

As the review on disciplinary procedures is considered an important issue affecting all members, the General Council have organised an open discussion forum. The General Council will share with members the review by the Working Group including the current disciplinary procedures, the proposed changes, recommendations and the way forward.

All members are invited to attend the forum to share their views on the proposals.
