The TWSE may from time to time select TWSE listed companies according to the standards for sampling checks set forth below and require them to submit financial and business related materials or photocopies thereof for purposes of verifying material information disclosures and the timeliness, accuracy, and completeness thereof. When necessary, it may also carry out an on-site audit.
When the TWSE deems necessary, pursuant to the listing contract, the TWSE Operating Rules, or these Procedures, it may make inquiries to a TWSE secondary listed company or its agent located in the ROC, or request that the company or its agent provide the relevant information.

- Any circumstances the TWSE deems to require investigation and verification.
- Financial and business materials to be submitted:
