Date Event Background Resources
1 January 2019 The revised UK Corporate Governance Code (UKCG Code) will apply to premium listed companies with accounting periods beginning on or after this date. The UKCG Code has been revised as a result of the government’s response to the Green Paper Consultation on Corporate Governance Reform, as well as the Hampton-Alexander Review and Parker Review.
The key changes relate to executive pay and strengthening the employee, customer and supplier voice. Other changes have been made to ensure that the UKCG Code challenges directors to consider the composition of not only the board, but also the management pipeline.
The FRC consulted on the revised UKCG Code in December 2017.
