We received six written submissions from a variety of market participants which have now been considered and integrated into the final handbook. 

The handbook is intended to help directors assess whether going public is the right choice for their company and to provide an insight into the process of becoming a public company.  It should be read alongside the handbook Corporate Governance in New Zealand: Principles and Guidelines which is a resource for directors, executives and advisers to help them understand what is expected of them more generally in their governance roles.  

Governance and culture has been identified as one of our strategic priorities that will guide our work over the coming three years.
