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 one existing technical note
- Related party transactions - Modified requirements for smaller related party transactions (UKLA/TN/308.3)
The addition of one new technical note
We summarise our proposals in Primary Market Bulletin No. 14.
