Hongkong Post Bank-Cert (Corporate) certificates are issued to organisations that hold a valid business registration certificate issued by the Government of the Hong Kong SAR and statutory bodies of Hong Kong whose existence is recognized by the laws of Hong Kong (a "Subscriber Organisation"); and identifies a Subscriber Organisation's member or employee (an "Authorised Users") who has been duly authorised to use that Bank-Cert (Corporate) certificate.
