The task of the Audit Committee is, without otherwise affecting the Board’s duties and tasks, to monitor the company’s financial reporting and leave recommendations and proposals to ensure the reliability of the reports. Regarding the financial reporting, the committee monitors the efficiency of the company’s internal control, internal audit and risk management. The Audit Committee keeps itself continuously informed on the audit of the Annual Report and the consolidated financial statement and, when applicable, on the conclusions of the Swedish Inspectorate of Auditor’s quality control of the external auditor.

The Audit Committee informs the Board on its observations and of the result of the audit. The Audit Committee also reviews and monitors the auditor’s impartiality and independence. In this regard, it is particularly noted whether the auditor provides the company with other services than auditing. The committee also evaluates the auditor’s work and submits recommendations to the company’s Nomination Committee regarding the appointment of auditor for the forthcoming term of office.
The members of the committee are not to be employed by the company. At least one member is to have accounting or auditing experience.
