In our July newsletter we reported on the FCA's proposals to update its handbook to reflect the latest edition of the UK Corporate Governance Code (click here to see the article). In Handbook Notice 26, the FCA has published its response together with its final changes – the proposals being adopted with only minor revisions. To see the response statement, click here. The change to DTR 8 (headline codes) will come into force on 1 December 2015. All other changes took effect from 23 October 2015.
