The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has published a Position Paper setting out the next steps to reform the UK’s audit and corporate governance framework.
The Position Paper sets out proposed changes to the UK Corporate Governance Code. It aims to provide a stronger framework for reporting on the effectiveness of internal controls and Board responsibilities for expanded sustainability and ESG reporting, and new guidance on enhanced resilience statements and fraud reporting by directors.
It also sets out the next steps for the FRC’s transition to a new regulator The Audit, Reporting and Governance Authority (ARGA).
