star this property answer text <p>The Office for National Statistics concluded in December 2014 that the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) was a public body within central government. The Department for Business Innovation and Skills (as it then was) examined whether there was scope for further review. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy concluded in 2017 that they should work with the FRC on the formal application of all relevant guidelines. Prior to that date, the Department communicated the requirements it imposed on the FRC as a public body through the FRC’s Chief Executive Officer.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK Corporate Governance Code is the responsibility of the Financial Reporting Council. It is the responsibility of investors to assess the quality of reporting and engage with companies accordingly.</p><p> </p><p>The 2018 Code is a substantial revision and comes into force for accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019. Reporting against the revised Code will therefore not be required until 2020 when companies publish their annual reports and accounts for the preceding year. However, the FRC intends to evaluate the extent of early adoption of the new Code in terms of reporting on the application of its Principles and compliance or otherwise with its Provisions and to publish its findings at the end of 2019.</p><p> </p><p>The FRC is the subject of an independent review being led by Sir John Kingman which is expected to report before the end of the year.</p><p> </p> more like this
