Supervisory Board

Independent supervision of and support for the directors and management is essential. A Supervisory Board or Oversight Board is not ‘compulsory’ for a normal BV, but you are allowed to establish a Supervisory Board should you wish. This is set out in the Dutch Civil Code (Book 2, articles 140 and 250). A Supervisory Board is mandatory for a large public company.

A lot is happening in the world of Corporate Governance. There are a number of requirements coming out of the applicable Corporate Governance codes and the resulting regulations that are much more explicit and complex. This requires independent individuals in your Supervisory Board or Oversight Board, who can take a look at different issues from a practical and “open-minded” perspective. Professionalism and responsibility are expected in numerous situations, such as in financial, legal or sector-specific areas.
