Audit Committee

The Board of Directors has established and appointed an Audit Committee, which operates under the instructions for the Audit Committee and meets with Securitas' auditors at least four times per year. The Committee supports the Board's quality-control work in terms of financial reports, and its internal control over financial reporting.

Specifically, the Committee monitors the financial reporting, the effectiveness of internal control, internal audit activities and the risk management system. The Committee also stays informed about annual statutory audits. It assesses the external auditor's independence and approves the performance of non-audit services.

The Committee presents its findings and proposals to the Board, prior to the Board's decision. For details regarding members and attendance, refer to the table above. The Committee met four times during 2017.
