Declaration of Conformity

In 2002 the specially established Government Commission adopted the German Corporate Governance Code, which recommends the conduct standards for responsible company management and supervision aimed at wealth creation, in particular for companies quoted on the stock exchange.

A new Article 161 was inserted in the Joint Stock Corporation Act when the Transparency and Publicity Act entered in force. This required the Management Board and Supervisory Board of a company quoted on the stock exchange to make a declaration once a year stating whether the Code has been and is being complied with or which recommendations of the Code have not been applied.

2002 was the first year in which a declaration of this kind had to be made.

On 18 December 2013, the Management Board and Supervisory Board of SinnerSchrader AG issued the following declaration of compliance on the recommendations of the “Government Commission for the German Corporate Governance Code” as amended on 15 May 2012:
