The Audit Committee serves in a preparatory and oversight role with respect to the Company’s risk management, governance and control over financial reporting.
The Audit Committee held four meetings in 2022. The Company’s auditor participated at three of these meetings. The committee’s work has entailed, among other things, maintaining regular contact with the auditor to ensure that the Company’s external reporting meets the requirements placed on a listed company, monitoring the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, staying informed about the audit of the annual report and consolidated financial statements, and discussing the scope and focus of the audit work with the auditor. In addition, the Audit Committee reviewed and conducted oversight of the auditor’s impartiality and independence, and issued guidelines for which other services than auditing may be procured from the Company’s auditor. The Audit Committee also made a recommendation for election of the auditor to the 2022 AGM. The auditor reported on its observations to the Audit Committee on a regular basis.
