HK regulator launches legal proceedings against Ernst & Young Hong Kong's securities regulator said on Monday it had launched legal proceedings against Ernst & Young for failing to produce accounting records related to a Chinese company as specified, the latest auditor to run into trouble over a Chinese client. Ernst & Young claimed it did not have the relevant records on Standard Water Ltd, which were held in China by its joint venture partner, Ernst & Young Hua Ming, the SFC said in a statement, adding the auditor then said the documents could not be produced due to restrictions under Chinese law. "Given Ernst & Young was the reporting accountant and EY Hua Ming was Ernst & Young's agent, the failure to produce these records to the relevant mainland authority on the SFC's request is a matter of serious concern," it said.
