Implementation of, and compliance with, the individual rules in the Austrian Code of Code of Corporate Governance were evaluated by PwC Wirtschaftsprüfung GmbH for the 2015 financial year – with the exception of Rules 77 to 83. Compliance with Rules 77 to 83 of the Code was evaluated by Schönherr Rechtsanwälte GmbH. The evaluation is carried out largely using the questionnaire for the evaluation of compliance with the Code published by the Austrian Working Group for Corporate Governance (as amended January 2015).
On completion of the evaluation, PwC Wirtschaftsprüfung GmbH and Schönherr Rechtsanwälte GmbH confirmed that UNIQA had complied with the rules of the Austrian Code of Corporate Governance in 2015 – to the extent that these rules were covered by UNIQA’s declaration of conformity. Some of the rules were not applicable to UNIQA in the evaluation period.
