Internal monitoring and risk management

The Group’s business and administration are primarily monitored and controlled by means of the Group’s management system. The Group has a financial reporting system whose purpose is to provide the Group and profit center management with sufficient information for planning, control, and monitoring of operations.

Internal auditing:

With regard to the nature and scope of its business operations, the Group has not deemed it appropriate to establish a separate internal auditing organization. Rather, its tasks are included in the duties of the business organization.

Risk management:

The objective of the Group’s risk management process is to identify any risks that pose a threat to the business operations, evaluate them, and develop the necessary risk management methods. Business-related risks of material, consequential, and liability losses are covered by appropriate insurance policies.
