FERMA and the European Confederation of Institutes of Internal Auditing (ECIIA) will launch a new joint guidance document on the risk management provisions of the EU 8th Company Law Directive at the FERMA Seminar on 20 and 21 October.

There will be a dedicated portion of the Seminar press conference on Monday 20 October where senior representatives of FERMA and ECIIA will present the new guidance, and copies will be distributed to Seminar delegates. There will also be an online version available for download from the FERMA and ECIIA websites.

This new document will supplement the two previous reports published by FERMA and ECIIA on the 8th Company Law Directive in for boards and audit committees and for senior managers and executive committees in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
