To maintain a high level of professionalism among members, the ASHK regulates actuarial practice of members by issuing By-Laws, professional standards and actuarial guidance notes.

ASHK By-Laws
ASHK By-Law (1) : Due Process for the Development of Professional Standards and Guidance Notes
A revised due process for development of professional standards and actuarial guidance notes was approved as a By-Law of the ASHK in the Council Meeting on 17 January 2011. This minimizes the time length for passing of professional standards and actuarial guidance notes and puts the ASHK operations more in line with international practices.
ASHK By-Law (2) : Continuing Professional Development ("CPD")

The ASHK Council called an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) on 21 January 2016 to seek members' approval on the adoption of new CPD requirements.  The proposed resolutions as set out in the EGM Notice have been duly passed by way of poll.  This CPD By-Law therefore serves as the new CPD requirements starting from calendar year 2016  and applies to all non-retired Fellow and Associate members of the ASHK.

The old version of the CPD requirements (for calendar years 2014 and 2015) are still available for those who wish to refer to it.

In addition, Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA)'s Regulation Board has recognised the ASHK's CPD Scheme as equivalent to the IFoA's CPD arrangements and added our Scheme to their list of recognised International Actuarial Association bodies in Schedule 5 of the IFoA's 2016/2017 CPD Scheme.
