Governance and reporting

As an AIM listed company, RWS has chosen to implement The Quoted Companies Alliance Corporate Governance Code (the QCA Code). The principles and disclosures laid out by the QCA Code provide a framework to ensure we have the appropriate corporate governance arrangements in place. The Board considers that RWS does not depart from any of the principles of the QCA Code and our 2020 Annual Report includes details of our compliance, which is reviewed annually in line with the requirements of the QCA Code.
