To control groupwide risk management activities, Sysmex has established a Risk Management Committee (RM Committee). The committee is chaired by a risk management officer, a senior managing director. Committee members include some members of the Managing Board, as well as executive officers, who handle risks.
The RM Committee regularly assesses various risks, such as those related to corruption, business ethics and other aspects of compliance, human resources, occupational safety and health, the environment, and accounting and finance, including tax payments. The committee identifies major risks affecting the Groupʼs operations and prepares countermeasures.
The RM Committee monitors the status of risk management being conducted by the Compliance Committee, other related committees, individual divisions and subsidiaries. The committee also deliberates responses to any emerging risks that have a major impact on Group management.
