Our internal rules and charters are based on the external laws and regulations the Company is subject to.

The company is governed by the laws of the Netherlands (in particular Book 2 of the Dutch Civil Code) and by its Articles of Association.

The Group is also subject to various legal provisions of the Dutch Financial Supervision Act (Wet op het financieel toezicht - the “WFT”).

In addition, given the fact that its shares are admitted for trading on a regulated market in France, Germany and Spain, the Company is subject to certain laws and regulations in these three jurisdictions.
As an extension to our Articles of Association, the Board and Committees have their own charter and set of rules.
