HKMA revokes direction for advice on Octopus Cards The Monetary Authority will today revoke the direction on Octopus Cards to seek advice from Andrew Chan Chi-fai as an adviser on its affairs after consulting Professor Chan and the financial secretary. The company was directed on February 18, 2007, to seek advice from Professor Chan - the associate dean of the faculty of business administration of Chinese University and chairman of the Hong Kong Deposit Protection Board - after faulty charges were found to have been made to cardholders' bank accounts. Following recent reviews in consultation with Professor Chan, the Monetary Authority has determined that it is no longer necessary for the direction on Octopus Cards to remain in force.
