FCA consults on the Knowledge Base

The FCA today issued GC16/3: Primary Market Bulletin No. 13, in which it consults on proposed changes 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.

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.

The FCA consultation consists of several proposals for amendments and additions and can be found here.
