Arrangements relating to SFC’s public services


Please complete the required fields.

The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) has reconfigured its staffing arrangements in response to the recent COVID-19 developments.  These arrangements will result in the majority of SFC staff working from home.

The SFC will still do its utmost to continue to provide all of its public services as usual.  It is, however, possible that response times in some areas may be longer than normal.  This may affect, for example, some licensing applications, some product applications, and our public complaints and enquiry service.  We will endeavour to keep any interruptions or delays to a minimum.

The SFC appreciates that some market participants may experience operational difficulties during this period; they are nevertheless expected to use all reasonable efforts to maintain “business as usual” in relation to their regulatory obligations and all regulatory filing, reporting and other deadlines.
