ASX Listing Rule 4.10.3 requires ASX listed companies to report on the extent to which they have followed the Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (“ASX Principles”) 3rdEdition released by the ASX Corporate Governance Council on 27 March 2014, which take effect for the Company from 1 July 2014. The ASX Principles require the Board to consider carefully the development and adoption of appropriate corporate governance policies and practices founded on the ASX Principles.
These Recommendations are not prescriptive, they are guidelines designed to cover companies of all sizes and produce an outcome that is effective, of high quality and integrity. The Company’s Board of Directors has reviewed these Recommendations and in most cases the Company was already achieving the standards required. In a limited number of instances, the Company has determined not to comply with the standard set out in the Recommendations largely due to the Recommendation being considered by the Board to be unduly onerous for a Company of its size. The ASX Corporate Governance Council encourages all companies to communicate openly with stakeholders via electronic methods. In accordance with this, all relevant Corporate Governance material is required to be made publicly available on the Company’s website in a clearly designated section. The links below will provide you access to information on the Company’s policies and procedures as required to be detailed by the ASX Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations.
