New Corporate Governance Code

24 October 2018

On 16 July 2018, the Financial Reporting Council published the new UK Corporate Governance Code. The new Code replaces the version of the Code issued in April 2016 and applies to Irish-incorporated companies listed on the Main Securities Market of Euronext Dublin (formerly the ISE), as well as Irish companies with a premium listing on the London Stock Exchange. The Code is also used by many unlisted companies and funds as a benchmark for good corporate governance.

Formerly known as the Combined Code, the FRC's (Financial Reporting Council) UK Corporate Governance Code 2018 is substantially changed from previous versions with an increased emphasis on company culture.
