Compliance Committee

Structure

Formation of the committee
The compliance committee is directly supervised by the chairman and is comprised of 7 members, the chairperson, 3 third-party members, and 3 internal company members. External committee members are experts in the legal or accounting field with specialized knowledge and the rest of the committee members are employees currently working in one of the subsidiary companies. The term for each committee member is 2 years, and can be extended.
Member Appointment Background
In order to ensure that the Compliance Committee operates effectively and professionally, we have appointed a highly qualified individual from outside the company with a strong background in law, and whom we trust greatly, as chairman. The external committee members that we appointed include a professor of business administration with expertise and knowledge of the field who is able to competently review issues in the financial field, and two lawyers who have accumulated experience in courts and prosecutor's offices. We appointed internal committee members that include specialists in the area of compliance, including HR management, tax accounting and legal affairs, in order to make comprehensive review possible.

Resolution of Group Compliance Policies

  • The compliance organizations of the Group's major affiliates report the details of their compliance activities to the Committee every quarter, and then the Committee generates compliance business improvements based on these reports. These improvements are to be reflected in each affiliated company in order to strengthen communication between affiliates and members of the Committee. It is our goal to raise business synergy.
