The Quoted Companies Alliance (QCA) has published a revised version of its Corporate Governance Code.

The QCA Corporate Governance Code is tailored to meet the needs of small and mid-size quoted firms. It is referred to by a substantial number of AIM companies on their websites, and is also used by a number of privately-owned companies.

Since its initial release in 2013, it has become a valuable reference for growing companies wishing to follow good governance practice. It serves as a practical outcome-oriented approach to corporate governance for those quoted companies in the UK not obliged to apply the Financial Reporting Council's (FRC's) UK Corporate Governance Code under the Listing Rules.

The revised version includes 10 corporate governance principles that companies should follow, and step-by-step guidance on how to effectively apply these principles.

You can access the QCA Corporate Governance Code here. It is freely available to QCA members – payment of a fee is required for non-members.  Our related Governance in brief publication is available here.
