CG Guide

The CG Guide is aimed at providing practical guidance to listed issuers to improve CG practices and reporting in line with the principles and practices contained in the Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance (“MCCG”) and enhanced CG disclosure requirements in the Listing Requirements.

The CG Guide sets out, amongst others, the new approach of “CARE” (Comprehend, Apply and Report) introduced in the MCCG, practical guidance as well as recommendations to ease the adoption of the principles, practices and step-ups in the MCCG by listed issuers. In addition, the CG Guide also provides insights for internalisation of CG in listed issuers through illustrations, case studies and references from international developments.
