The Board of Directors has set up four committees to supervise specific areas or prepare cases for consideration by the full Board.
The Audit Committee operates as a preparatory committee for the Board of Directors with respect to Danske Bank’s accounting and auditing matters, including related risk matters. This also includes issues that the Board, the Committee itself, the Chief Audit Executive or the external auditor believe require preparatory work before being brought to the full Board.
