The Code Committee is drawn from a spread of shareholder, corporate, practitioner and other interests within the Panel’s regulated community.
The Code Committee carries out the rule-making functions of the Panel and is solely responsible for keeping the Code (other than certain matters as described in Section 4(b) of the Introduction to the Code) under review and for proposing, consulting on, making and issuing amendments to those parts of the Code. The Code Committee is also responsible, in consultation with the Hearings Committee, for proposing, consulting on, and adopting the Rules of Procedure of the Hearings Committee.
The Code Committee’s consultation procedures are set out in its Procedures for Amending the Takeover Code.
PCPs and RSs issued by the Code Committee can be viewed in the Consultation section.
