Abstract of DIN SPEC 33456

Non german speaking supervisory board members often need a reference point and practical advice with regard to the german corporate governance system. Below you can find an abstract of the DIN SPEC 33456 „Business Process Guidelines for Supervisory Boards and Independent Directors“, which might be helpful:

„The DIN SPEC includes guidelines for organizational processes and business processes in oversight bodies such as supervisory boards, advisory boards and boards of directors. The guidelines are set to impose a reference model and a process map of the supervisory board for routines that occur regularly as part of the monitoring work. Potential users and target groups of these guidelines are advisory boards of various companies, especially medium-sized companies, family businesses, foundations and public companies. The reference model provides sufficient degrees of freedom and thereby flexibility of an enterprise customization. The DIN SPEC primarily is supposed to provide a business perspective of the regular running routine work of supervisory bodies.“
