Last week, the UK Financial Reporting Council (FRC) published the final version of its updated Corporate Governance Code. The changes to the Code, which primarily revolve around the effectiveness of internal controls, will come into effect in January 2026.

When the FRC initially published a consultative draft of the Code in May 2023, it contained 18 proposed changes.

The FRC elected to do away with many of these reforms late last year in the name of industry competitiveness.
