RULES OF PROCEDURE OF THE BOARD
Each year, the Board of Directors sets a written agenda that clarifies, among other matters, the responsibilities of the Board and that regulates the mutual division of labour between the Board and its committees, as well as the role of the President. The rules of procedure also govern how the Board will obtain information and documentation as a basis for exercising its responsibilities and to enable it to make informed decisions.
