Corporate Governance

The past few years have seen a considerable regulatory focus on corporate governance in most developed and developing countries around the world. Proposed legislation and debate indicate that this is likely to continue in the years to come.

The external landscape is continually evolving and director responsibilities keep changing to meet new Governance standards.

In Australia, whether a listed company or not, the ASX Corporate Governance Council’s Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations, first published in 2003 and now in its third edition, has become the yardstick against which the corporate governance practices of companies are measured by investors and other stakeholders.
