Internal Control and Risk Management

The model of internal control and risk management system

Internal control is an integral component of Company’s governing system, focused to ensure reasonable guarantees that the goals below are achieved:

  • Company’s efficiency and performance, including achievement of financial and operational indicators, soundness of  assets;
  • Company’s compliance with applicable laws and Company’s enactments, incl. Company’s operations and accounting;
  • Provision of integrity and timeliness of financial and other reporting.

Internal control covers all lines of Company’s operations, with all processes regularly controlled at all management levels. The Company’s system of internal control functions in line with the “three lines of defense” model. This model means that internal control is enforced on three levels:

  • First line of defense: management bodies (sole and collegiate executive bodies), units in charge of the control procedure due to their duties;
  • Second line of defense: Company's control units;
  • Third line of defense: Internal Audit unit.

With a view to secure sustainable faultless operations and evolution of the Company we have implemented the risk management system that identifies, evaluates and effectively manages risks threatening Company’s reputation and operations, health of employees, environment and ownership interests of stockholders and investors. To develop the RMS the Company’s Board of Directors has adopted the Risk Management Policy.
