Supervisory Board

The main duties of the Supervisory Board are supervising the policy of the Management Board and the general course of affairs of business in IMCD, and providing advice to the Management Board. The members of the Supervisory Board take the company’s interests and the enterprise connected therewith into account in the performance of their duties. The Supervisory Board members are appointed by the General Meeting of Shareholders pursuant to a binding nomination by the Supervisory Board. The General Meeting of Shareholders can overrule the binding character of the nomination by an absolute majority, representing at least 1/3 of the issued share capital.

The Supervisory Board is supported in its decision-making by two committees:

1. the Audit Committee, responsible for supervising the quality and integrity of the IMCD’s financial reporting and internal risk management and control systems, including legal and ethical compliance, and advising the Management Board in relation to these matters; and

2. the Remuneration Committee, responsible for advising the Supervisory Board on the remuneration of the Management Board.
