The respective committee chairmen report regularly to the Supervisory Board on the work of the committees.

The Supervisory Board has set up a Personnel Committee, a Finance and Investment Committee, an Audit Committee, a Nomination Committee and an Arbitration Committee. The duties and members of the committees are specified below.
