GC16/3: Primary Market Bulletin No. 13

We are consulting on the following changes that we are proposing to make to the Knowledge Base.

This guidance is likely to be of most relevance to issuers of transferable securities and their advisers, investors and other persons who interact with the UK Listing Authority.

Background to this consultation

The Knowledge Base is the UKLA’s repository of non-handbook commentary that has the status of formal FCA guidance. It consists of a series of short procedural and technical notes published in PDF form and ordered by topic. The notes relate to aspects of the Listing Rules, Prospectus Rules and Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

Summary of our proposals

We are consulting on the following changes that we are proposing to make to the Knowledge Base:

The amendment of six existing procedural note

The addition of five new technical notes

The re-consultation of one new technical note proposed in PMB No. 7

The amendment of three existing technical notes

We summarise our proposals in Primary Market Bulletin No. 13.
