About this edition

Welcome to the 36th edition of the Primary Market Bulletin (PMB). 

In this special edition we introduce specific Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) aligned climate-related disclosure requirements for listed companies and set out our disclosure expectations and supervisory strategy. This includes an important consultation and we look forward to your feedback. 

Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006 (LRRA)

We consider that the proposal has regard to the 5 LRRA principles, that regulatory activities should be carried out in a way which is:

  • transparent
  • accountable
  • proportionate
  • consistent 
  • targeted only at cases in which action is needed

We considered the Regulators’ Code, particularly the requirement for proportionate and targeted regulatory activity. The aim of the amendment to the Knowledge Base in this PMB is to update guidance to issuers and primary market practitioners. 

Equality and diversity

We are confident that our proposal does not give rise to equality and diversity implications, but we welcome comments should you have any concerns.
