VANCOUVER, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - The executive director of the British Columbia Securities Commission has issued a notice of hearing seeking reciprocal orders against Dirk Christian Lohrisch based on a July 26, 2010 decision of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC).

  • submitted a registration form to IIROC that was misleading about his credentials,
  • submitted a forged a transcript to IIROC, and
  • attempted to obstruct IIROC staff's investigation into his conduct.

The IIROC panel imposed a permanent ban on Lohrisch from approval in any capacity, fined him $40,000 and ordered him to pay costs of $27,000.
