The Revised Corporation Code (RCC), which took effect on Feb. 23, 2019, recently introduced significant changes to the conduct of corporate meetings and in effect imposed additional obligations on the corporate secretary in the conduct of such meetings. One such change is contained in Sec. 49 of the RCC, which mandates that regular meetings of the stockholders or members shall be held annually on a date fixed in the by-laws, or if not so fixed, on any date after April 15 of every year.

Republic Act No. 11232 or the Revised Corporation Code (RCC) has expanded the role and increased the powers of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Senator Franklin Drilon, the main author of the law, said during the very well-attended joint forum of the RCC, spearheaded by the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD), held on March 26, 2019, the RCC has four reform clusters: 1) set policies that will enhance the ease of doing business in the Philippines, 2) strengthened stockholder protection and institutionalized good governance, 3) institutionalized provisions that will instill corporate social responsibility and 4) strengthened the country’s policy and regulatory corporate framework.
