Corporate Governance Code & Declarations of Conformity

The German Corporate Governance Code contains three types of rules that differ from each other in terms of their binding character: statutory regulations, recommendations and suggestions.

Recommendations (“shall”) establish internationally and nationally recognized standards of conduct. In addition, the Code provides suggestions (“should”) to individual companies for good and responsible corporate governance and control. In contrast to statutory regulations, compliance with recommendations and suggestions is not mandatory.

Regarding suggestions, however, exchange-listed companies must explain the degree of compliance with them once a year (Declaration of Conformity). Any possible deviations must be disclosed therein. Beyond the scope of the Declaration of Conformity, the alliance also provides information about the implementation of suggestions on a voluntary basis.
