FRC consults on a new-style UK Corporate Governance Code

The FRC has published a new-style UK Corporate Governance Code for consultation together with revised Guidance on Board Effectiveness and some questions on the future of the Stewardship Code. This is not a tweaking of the Code as in recent years but a substantial re-write and simplification/reduction with a focus on the company’s approach to governance through the application of the Code principles - principles which emphasise the value of good corporate governance to long-term success. The revised Code also incorporates elements of the Government’s corporate governance reform agenda. The consultation period lasts until 28 February 2018.
