The Board recognises the importance of establishing a comprehensive system of control and accountability as the basis for the administration of corporate governance.
To the extent relevant and practical, the Company has adopted a corporate governance framework that is consistent with The Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (4th Edition) as published by ASX Corporate Governance Council (“Recommendations”).
The Board has adopted the following suite of corporate governance policies and procedures which are contained with the Company’s Corporate Governance Plan:
The Board is committed to administering the policies and procedures with openness and integrity, pursuing the true spirit of corporate governance commensurate with the Company’s needs.
In light of the Company’s size and nature, the Board considers that the current corporate governance regime is a fit-for-purpose, efficient, practical and cost-effective method of directing and managing the Company. As the Company’s activities develop in size, nature and scope, the implementation of additional corporate governance policies and structures will be reviewed.
The Company is required to report any departures from the ASX Recommendations on an annual basis. The Company’s compliance and departures from the ASX Recommendations as at the date of the last reporting to ASX are set out in the following documents.
