Corporate Governance Codes, Principles & Recommendations

Through this website, the Institute makes available the full texts of corporate governance codes, principles of corporate governance and corporate governance reforms both in Europe and elsewhere.

These documents come from various sources: some have originated from other publicly accessible websites; others have been submitted by their issuing institution; and many have been sent by ECGI members and others. All contributions are acknowledged and credited.

It should be noted that the ECGI does not hold the copyright, nor can we guarantee the accuracy or completeness of this information - see our Terms and Conditions of Use.

In most cases, the links allow you to download the code from this website in pdf format. Where a document is explicitly excluded from online distribution, ordering information is provided. Monitoring reports and impact studies are listed with each code or reform where they are available.

We aim to maintain the most comprehensive and up-to-date database. If readers know of a code, principle or corporate governance rule that cannot be accessed via this site, and would like to make it available for downloading, please contact the Codes Editor.
