Course Corporate Governance: Recent Developments and Reform


This course explores the wide-ranging developments in the UK’s corporate governance regime including those which implement Government proposals for reform published in 2017. These (and other recent changes) represent part of a step change in thinking about governance, driven in large part by concerns about perceived lack of social responsibility in many parts of the commercial world, a continuing series of scandals affecting companies, and by the apparent lack of effectiveness of the provisions of the Companies Act 2006 which impose ‘general duties’ on company directors in addressing part of these problems.

It is a must-attend for anyone involved in governance, whether in their own organisation (including company secretaries) or advising others (at associate or partner level).

The course covers:

  • FRC UK Corporate Governance Code for listed companies and Guidance on Board Effectiveness
  • QCA Corporate Governance Code for AIM and other small and medium size quoted companies
  • Corporate governance principles for larger private companies
  • Legislative requirements for reporting aimed at increasing transparency and increasing the ‘stakeholder voice’ in company affairs
  • ICSA/Investment Association guidance on reflecting the stakeholder voice in boardroom decision making
  • The ‘failure to prevent’ offences created by the Bribery Act 2010 and the Criminal Finances Act 2017
  • Developments in the insolvency regime and for penalising directors by disqualification or financial penalty

  • Developments relating to the proposed new UK Stewardship Code
