Supervisory Board

The Supervisory Board is responsible for monitoring the Management Board’s policy and the general course of events in the company. In addition, the supervisory directors assist the Management Board by providing advice. Together, the supervisory directors have both the expertise and the broad knowledge required.

The desired size and composition of this body are described in the Supervisory Board Profile. Members of the Supervisory Board are appointed for a term of four years and may be re-elected after this term has ended. Members may serve for a maximum of 12 years.

In order to properly perform its duties, the Supervisory Board formed an Audit Committee. The Supervisory Board and the Audit Committee have provided for their working procedures in the Supervisory Board Regulations and the Audit Committee Regulations.
