CP 128 Handling confidential information

Released 21 December 2009. Comments closed 21 February 2010.

This consultation paper contains our proposals for best practice relating to the handling of confidential information, primarily in the context of capital raisings and mergers and acquisitions.

The proposed guidelines are designed to help companies, advisers and other service providers raise the standard of their policies and procedures to reduce the occurrence of market-sensitive leaks. We are seeking views on the draft guidelines from companies, advisers and other service providers who handle market-sensitive information to ensure they are appropriate and will be effective.

We have attached a draft regulatory guide reflecting the proposals outlined in this paper.
