To ensure transparency and efficiency, the EPSO-G Group has a centralised internal audit division, which performs its functions throughout the Group and is directly accountable to the EPSO-G Board, which is composed mainly of independent members.
The auditors of the holding company EPSO-G are not subordinate to the administration of the audited entity. This creates the conditions to identify potential operational shortcomings and eliminate them, as well as to identify areas in which operational efficiency can be improved.
EPSO-G’s internal audit mission is to add value to all companies in the Group and to contribute to the achievement of their operational objectives by systematically and comprehensively assessing and contributing to the improvement of the effectiveness of management, risk management and control processes.
The staff of the division conduct regular internal audits and regularly monitor the implementation of recommendations, as well as the correction of other internal control deficiencies identified by external auditors, the regulator or public audit institutions.
In 2021, Energy cells has entered into an audit services agreement with PricewaterhouseCoopers.
