Internal Audit

In accordance with the "Internal Control System" and the "Rules for the Implementation of Internal Audit" internal auditors are responsible for formulating AVer's annual auditing plan. According to the plan, internal auditors examine and assess the implementation of internal control policies and provide recommendations for improvement in order to ensure AVer's internal control system is implemented effectively and sustainably.

In addition, internal auditors review departmental self-assessments to determine the quality of departmental operations and then consolidate the results of these reviews, listing recommendations for improvements. Internal auditors are to provide the Board and President an assessment of the effectiveness of the overall internal control system and issue a statement based on the previous assessment.

The Audit Office is to function as an independent unit under the Board of Directors. The AVer Audit Office currently has two auditors. Besides reporting to the Board during its ordinary meetings, internal auditors also report regularly to the Chairman and the Audit Committee.
