Internal Control System

One of the implementations of good corporate governance is to ensure that the Internal Control System operates effectively. The implementation of the Internal Control System is directed at ensuring that the Company has already had reliable financial statements and information, compliance with the applicable laws and regulations, as well as efficiency and effectiveness of operational activities. The Internal Control System is a process designed and performed by the Board of Commissioners, Board of
Directors, and other members of the management as part of the implementation of the check and balance mechanism.

The financial control system is implemented by the Company by providing financial information for every management level, Shareholders, and Stakeholders, which is used as the basis for decision making. This system can be used by the management to plan and control the Company’s operations. Meanwhile, the operational control system is carried out by implementing policies and procedures that are directly used to achieve goals and targets as well as guaranteeing or providing accurate financial statements and ensuring compliance with or adherence to laws and regulations. The implementation of these two control systems, both the financial control system and the operational control system, covers all elements within the Company.
