Ensuring compliance

Ensuring compliance

We have seen a host of new corporate governance codes in recent years that are designed to hold organisations to account for their decision making, culture and resilience.
But organisations must be conscious of not just complying with these codes in complete isolation of other considerations. 

If organisations do not naturally fit into an industry where there are established codes – such as the Charity Governance Code – choosing the right code is key. 

This page is dedicated to exploring the different pressures and requirements of complying with regulations and legislations, as well as other core considerations at this stage of an
organisation’s corporate governance approach.
