ASX Corporate Governance Series
The ASX released their revised Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (the Principles) in late 2007. The new Principles continue the non-prescriptive ‘if not, why not’ disclosure-based approach to Australian Corporate Governance.
The new ASX Principles will apply for financial years beginning on or after 1 January 2008 (i.e. for a 30 June balance date company, 30 June 2009).
Key changes include:
- a reduction in the number of principles from 10 to 8
- a reduction in the number of recommendations from 28 to 26
- removal of the word best practice
- removal of as much prescription as possible
- changes to Principle 7 including introduction of material business risks
- independence of directors
- trusts and other externally managed entities
- equity remuneration to executives.
