Revised specified forms upon the commencement of Phase 2 on 24 October 2022
To facilitate the implementation of Phase 2 of the New Inspection Regime, the Registrar of Companies (“the Registrar”) has revised 26 specified forms which pertain to the reporting of Protected Information for use starting from the Commencement Date.
Under Phase 2, among other measures, the usual residential addresses of directors and full identification numbers of directors, company secretaries and some other individuals such as authorized representatives and liquidators (collectively referred to as “Protected Information”) contained in documents delivered to the Companies Registry (“the Registry”) for registration on or after the Commencement Date will not be provided for public inspection. “Specified persons” may apply to the Registry for access to Protected Information of directors and other individuals.
