  • China's securities regulator, the CSRC, has issued new rules requiring domestic companies to comply with national security regulations and personal data protection laws before listing overseas. The rules don't ban the variable interest company structure often used by Chinese firms for U.S. listings.

  • The CSRC has set a deadline of March 31 for implementing its international listing regulations and mandates that foreign underwriters submit an annual report on their participation in Chinese listings abroad.
