The Board's committees

The Board of Directors annually appoints an Audit Committee, a Nomination Committee and a Remuneration Committee, and may also nominate any other committees, if considered necessary at its constitutive meeting following the Annual General Meeting. The Board appoints the members of these committees and their chairmen. The Board also has right to remove a member from a committee. The members of each committee are appointed for the same term of office as the Board itself. In addition to the committee members, other Board members may participate in committee meetings, if they wish to do so.
