Internal Control and Risk Management System

The established internal control system enables the company to identify any business or financial risks at an early stage and take appropriate action to manage them.

This control system is designed to ensure that risks are monitored in a timely manner, all business transactions are properly accounted for, and ­reliable data on the company’s financial position is always available.

When acquisitions are made, we aim to bring the acquired units’ internal control systems into line with those of the Bayer Group as quickly as possible.

However, the control and risk management system cannot provide absolute protection against losses arising from business risks or fraudulent actions.
