Our framework, code and rules

Our framework, code and rules

As Barclays is listed on the London Stock Exchange, we comply with the UK Corporate Governance Code.

Barclays has American Depository Receipts listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), and is also subject to the NYSE's corporate governance rules.

NYSE’s corporate governance rules permit Barclays to follow UK corporate governance practices instead of those applied in the US, provided that any significant variations are explained. This explanation is contained in Barclays’ 20-F filing, which can be accessed from the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) EDGAR database or in the Investor Relations section of this website.

Compliance with the Capital Requirements Directive – Governance

Section 4.3A.11R of the Prudential Regulation Authority’s manual, Senior Management Arrangements, Systems and Controls (“SYSC”), requires us to explain on our website how we comply with the requirements of SYSC 4.3A.1R to SYSC 4.3A.3R and SYSC 4.3A.4R to SYSC 4.3A.11R (governance arrangements).

Our explanation of how we meet these requirements can be found in Corporate Governance in Barclays, which includes details of the Matters Reserved to the Board, Board Committees’ terms of reference and our Board Diversity Policy. Further relevant details may be found in our 2016 Annual Report and Accounts and in our Directors’ biographies, all of which may be found on our website.
