The checklists and supplementary forms below are to be submitted to the Panel, by a financial adviser to an offeror or an offeree company (as appropriate), together with the relevant final announcement or document required to be sent to the Panel in accordance with Rule 30.5(a) or (b). The checklists require advisers to confirm and explain compliance with the relevant provisions of the Code.

The checklists are updated from time-to-time. Please ensure that you have the most recent version by downloading the relevant checklist and any supplementary forms from the list below.
