Practical Experience Framework Consultation


31 January 2018



As a continuation and integral part of the development of the new Qualification Programme ("QP"), the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (the "Institute") has conducted a comprehensive review of the Practical Experience Framework.


The review aims to ensure the revised framework aligns with international standards and the best practices of leading accountancy bodies. In particular, the revised framework enhances the flexibility of the practical experience requirements, strengthens the quality assurance of the Authorized Employer and Authorized Supervisor system, and promotes communication through online system.


The Institute has released the consultation paper which sets out the proposals on refining the practical experience requirements and enhancing the practical experience process. The purpose of the consultation is to elicit responses from all stakeholders before the final CPA qualification framework is adopted and the new QP is launched.

Please click pdf version or e-book version for the consultation paper.
