China passes law to ease IPO requirements

New rules for Shanghai and Shenzhen bourses aimed at preventing overseas floats

SHANGHAI -- China's top legislative body approved a legal revision aimed at easing listing requirements, in an apparent bid to prevent Chinese companies floating their shares on overseas bourses.

Effective March 1, companies seeking an initial public offering on the Shanghai and Shenzhen exchanges will be vetted by the bourses rather than the watchdog, the China Securities Regulator Commission, state media reported Sunday.
