The board has implemented the changes to the UK Corporate Governance Code introduced in 2018, to the extent that it is fully compliant except for the following matter:
The 2018 Code removes the small company exemption that the Company has previously taken to allow the Chairman to be a member of the Audit Committee. The Board, advised by the Nomination Committee, currently believe it is appropriate that the Chairman remains a member of the Audit Committee given the size of Wilmington plc and his experience. This decision will be assessed annually.
