The QCA Code is a practical, outcome-oriented approach to corporate governance that is tailored for small and mid-size quoted companies in the UK. Since its initial release in 2013, it has become a valuable reference for growing companies wishing to follow good governance examples.
The new and updated version of the QCA Corporate Governance Code includes 10 corporate governance principles that companies should follow, and step-by-step guidance on how to effectively apply these principles. The Code has been put together by the QCA’s Corporate Governance Expert Group and a standalone Working Group comprising leading individuals from across the small & mid-size quoted company ecosystem. The revision of the QCA Code is especially timely and relevant in that London Stock Exchange has announced a change in the rules so that all AIM companies will be required to apply a recognised corporate governance code and explain how they do so from September 2018.
