Committees of the Supervisory Board

The Supervisory Board forms an Executive and Nomination Committee, an Audit Committee and a Finance Committee from among its members. Additional committees are formed as needed. Committees are made up of at least four members of the Supervisory Board. The committees prepare topics to be discussed or resolved by the Supervisory Board. In addition, they pass resolutions on behalf of the entire Supervisory Board. The basis for committee work is the delegation of tasks and responsibilities within the scope of statutory requirements.
