The Pensions Regulator’s
single code of practice: Spotlight on good governance


summary image

The Pensions Regulator’s new single Code of Practice, which is expected to be implemented later this year, will introduce new governance responsibilities for trustees of both DB and DC pension schemes. We welcome the overall aim of the Code and encourage trustees to embrace the new requirements proportionately and in a way that enhances how they operate. 

We cast the spotlight on the new governance requirements being introduced by the Code and how trustees can prepare themselves for these changes. We strongly encourage Trustees to familiarise themselves with the draft Code and start reviewing their governance frameworks against the requirements.
