As was anticipated, the new Code focuses on corporate culture, stakeholder engagement, long-term decision-making, remuneration committees and diversity.
The FRC is also consulting on updated guidance on board effectiveness and will be consulting on their Stewardship Code following the Code consultation.
Once the new Code has been finalised, we will revise this course outline accordingly. However, given the tight timescale between publication and applicability, we are marketing this essential update course ahead of time.
On 5th December 2018, following the government’s corporate governance reform proposals, the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) published a revised UK Corporate Governance Code for consultation. The consultation will close on 28th February 2018. The FRC plans to publish the final revised Code by July 2018, with the new Code applying to reporting periods falling after January 2019.
The proposed new Code is substantially different in both content and structure, addressing the government’s recommendations and other hot topics in the corporate governance debate such as diversity and board culture.
