  • EN-B.4 Publicity

    • EN-B.4.1

      The CBB will not as a matter of general policy publicise individual cases when it uses the measures described in Chapters EN-2 to EN-5, and EN-8. However, in such cases the CBB may inform (where relevant) an authorised person'sG external auditor and – in the case of licenseesG with overseas operations – relevant overseas regulators.

    • EN-B.4.2

      In exceptional circumstances, as allowed by Article 132 of the CBB Law, the CBB may decide to publicise individual cases when the measures set out in Chapters EN-2 to EN-5 and EN-8 are used, where there is a strong case that doing so would help achieve the CBB's supervisory objectives. In such instances, the CBB will usually allow the licenseeG or person concerned the opportunity to make representations to the CBB before a public statement is issued.
