Where a listed companies or CMSP is unable to satisfy the CBB that its subsidiaries and other group members are subject to the same or equivalent arrangements, the CBB will assess the potential impact of risks — both financial and reputational — arising from inadequate corporate governance in the rest of the group of which it is a member. In such instances, the CBB may impose restrictions on dealings between the listed company, CMSP and other group members. Where weaknesses in controls are assessed by the CBB to pose a major threat to the stability of the listed company or CMSP, then its authorisation may be called into question.
