Internal Control Measures
Board of Directors adopts resolution adopted to establish internal control systems
In recent years, corporate scandals and lack of compliance have become matters of social concern. To prevent misconduct, management needs to implement stronger internal control systems. Japan's Company Law, which took effect in May 2006, obliges companies to construct internal control systems.
Every year, Konica Minolta, Inc., reviews the company's internal controls system in March, and the Board of Directors then renews its resolution to maintain the internal control system. An outline of the recent resolution was published in the business report for the fiscal year ended March 2014. Konica Minolta continues to strive to ensure the legality, rationality, and efficiency of its business activities by reviewing, as occasion demands, its systems and rules of supervision, and operations pertaining to all business across the Group.
Complying with Japan's Financial Instruments and Exchange Law
Conducting an internal assessment of 90 consolidated Group subsidiaries around the world
The Japanese Financial Instruments and Exchange Law (JSOX) was adopted during the fiscal year ended March 2009 in order to prevent corporate accounting fraud and ensure reliability of financial reporting.
Konica Minolta, Inc., conducts an internal assessment of its consolidated group subsidiaries both in and outside Japan and prepares its internal controls report. The report undergoes an internal controls audit by external auditors, and then is submitted together with the Japanese Annual Security Reports (fiscal year ended March 31, 2014).
