Since 2011, the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has published on its website an annual report on the implementation of the UK Corporate Governance Code. In addition, the Government recently published a Green Paper initiating a public consultation on how to upgrade the UK’s corporate governance framework, which included certain aspects of the Code. In February the FRC announced its plans for a fundamental review of the Code building on its globally recognised strengths while considering the appropriate balance between its principles and provisions and the growing demands on the corporate governance framework.
