Dates: 7 August 2019 (8.30am - 5.00pm)
Venue: Securities Commission Malaysia
Accreditation: SIDC 10 CPE Approved
The internalisation of corporate governance culture of the Malaysian Code of Corporate Governance (MCCG) has shown an impact to companies’ performances. Following the latest amendments to the Listing Requirements in October 2015, Bursa Malaysia has aligned the Listing Requirements (LR) and the CG Guide to reflect and guide listed issuers on the new CG application, disclosure approaches and reporting requirements. The amendments to the Listing Requirements was implemented on a staggered basis over three years, starting from 31 December 2016 to 31 December 2018.
This one day programme will provide an in-depth guidance on the application, disclosure and reporting expectations for listed issuers as set out under the new MCCG for Principles A, B and C as further outlined in Bursa Malaysia’s LR and CG Guide and provide insights on Bursa Malaysia’s Sustainability Governance toolkit.
The aim of this programme is to provide companies with guidance on the application, disclosures and reporting expectations of listed issuers for the Principles A, B and C as further outlined in the MCCG, Bursa’s LR and CG Guide. The programme will also highlight the required disclosure of a narrative statement of the management of material economic, environmental and social (“EES”) risks and opportunities (“Sustainability Statement”) as stated in Bursa Listing requirements.
