New Zealand: FMA consults on revised handbook on corporate governance principles and guidelines

The Financial Markets Authority has published for consultation a revised edition of its handbook Corporate Governance in New Zealand - Principles and Guidelines: see here (pdf). Information on how to provide feedback is available here. The handbook was first published in 2004 by the Securities Commission and is a reference guide to help directors and their advisers decide how best to apply the nine key corporate governance principles.

Note: on 1 May 2011 the Securities Commission was replaced by the FMA (see the Financial Markets Authority Act 2011).
