The risk in requiring reporting that internal control is effective is that it is human nature not to want to issue an adverse report; which in turn encourages directors to tick the boxes and put a gloss in public on situations that actually warrant significant improvement.
The Turnbull Report, that is appended to the Listing Rules of the UK Listing Authority, is the guidance on internal control that boards of all companies listed on the London Stock Exchange are currently required to follow and to report on in their annual reports to shareholders.
Reports that may be issued will, almost invariably, be a lengthy narrative report in order to communicate effectively the various judgements made by the external auditors, the reasoning underpinning those judgements, and the context in which the opinion is given.

The Cadbury report was one of the first attempts to develop a code of conduct for listed companies that went beyond existing laws to define something more subtle: guidelines for good behavior and disclosure that might set a company straight before questionable practices turned into legal cases.
London still tinkers with the details, but the Cadbury report is the basis of the "Combined Code," a standard that every company listed in the U.K. must follow or else explain itself to shareholders and the stock exchange.

The Cadbury Report looked at those aspects of corporate governance specifically related to financial reporting and accountability - specifically the control and reporting functions of PLC boards and the role of auditors.
The Cadbury Report defined corporate governance as 'the system by which organisations are directed and controlled'.
After the publication of the Cadbury Report the public sector recognised its value - particularly as this was the time of the Nolan Committee and concerns of sleaze in public life - and started to look at corporate governance but tended to focus more on the accountability and control aspects of governance.

In the company sector, the Cadbury Report on the Financial Aspects of Corporate Governance placed great emphasis on the role of non-executive directors in the governance of large companies which, in the UK, have traditionally been dominated by executives.
Both the Cadbury Report and the Co-operative Union Corporate Governance Working Group Report highlighted the role of the company or society chairman and secretary, the importance of board level participation in key decisions and the use of Audit Committees and Remuneration Committees as key elements of recommended practice2.
Cadbury emphasises the vital role of non-executive directors in contributing independent judgement on issues such as "strategy, performance, resources, including key appointments and standards of conduct"; their independence from management and the process of their appointment.

The most controversial and revolutionary requirement and the one that had the potential of significantly impacting the internal auditing, was the requirement that ' the Directors should report on the effectiveness of a company's system of internal control.' It was the extension of control beyond the financial matters that caused the controversy.
It restricted the reporting requirement to internal financial controls only as against the ‘the effectiveness of the company’s system of internal control’ as stipulated by the Code of Practices contained in the Cadbury Report.
The Combined Code was subsequently derived from Ron Hampel Committee’s Final Report and from the Cadbury Report and the Greenbury Report.

The bulk of the Cadbury Report (and most of the guidelines in the accompanying Code of Best Practice) focused, however, on the role which the board of directors should play in supervising executive decision making.
Moreover, the two Committees, in their respective reports, both indicated that it is inappropriate for full-time board executives to participate in decisions about their own remuneration packages, and recommended that a remuneration committee composed of outside directors should be responsible for formulating a company's policy on executive pay.
Moreover, the Cadbury Committee urged institutional investors to exchange views regularly with senior executives of companies, to "make positive use of their voting rights" at shareholder meetings, and to "take a positive interest in the composition of boards of directors" by ensuring that non-executives of the necessary caliber, experience, and independence are appointed.
