Risk management, compliance and internal audit functions do not cooperate with each other. Better coordination or combination of activities is necessary.

Given the increased focus on risk management, culture and internal audit in the revised Dutch Corporate Governance Code, there is a need to evaluate the Audit Committee.

No internal audit function has been established yet. As the Supervisory Board, we have to assess this situation each year and report on this in our annual report. To us, this is a complex issue and we are looking for benchmarks.

Based on organisational size, risk profile, culture, and governance structure, we map the potential added value of the internal audit function, including benchmarking as an input for evaluation.

The Corporate Governance Code demands accountability for risk management and control systems. We do not have a reference framework for this.

Assessment of current processes to achieve such accountability and recommendations for improvement.
