2009 Belgian Code on Corporate Governance

The 2009 Belgian Code on Corporate Governance ("Code 2009") applies to companies incorporated in Belgium whose shares are admitted to trading on a regulated market ('listed companies'). However, given its flexibility, the 2009 Code could also serve as a reference framework for all other companies.

The 2009 Code is the second edition of the Belgian Corporate Governance Code and replaces the Code issued in 2004.

The companies have thus reviewed their governance and, where necessary, adapted their corporate governance practices and their Corporate Governance Charter to the new provisions of the 2009 Code.
