In determining whether a company name is the same as another, certain words and their abbreviations will be disregarded: "company" - "and company" - "company limited" - "and company limited" - "limited" - "unlimited" - "public limited company". The type or cases of letters, spaces between letters, accent marks, and punctuation marks, also will be disregarded.

The following expressions "and" - "&", "Hongkong" - "Hong Kong" - "HK", "Far East" - "FE" are respectively to be taken as the same.
