Role and purpose

The committee is an independent, statutory committee whose members are appointed annually by Exxaro's shareholders in compliance with section 94 of the Companies Act and the principles of good governance. In terms of the Companies Act, this committee has an independent role with accountability to the board and shareholders of the company. The committee does not assume the functions of management, which remain the responsibility of the executive directors, prescribed officers and other members of senior management, nor does it assume accountability for the functions performed by other committees of the board. In addition to the Companies Act, the committee's duties are guided by the JSE Listings Requirements and King IV.

The committee is governed by its terms of reference that codify its role and responsibilities. To assist the board, the committee plays an essential role in providing independent oversight of:

  • Qualification and independence of the external auditor
  • Scope and effectiveness of the external audit function
  • Scope and effectiveness of the overall combined/integrated assurance process
  • Effectiveness of internal controls and the internal audit function
  • Assessing the adequacy of the company's insurance arrangements with regard to the nature of its business and insurable risks
  • Integrity and efficacy of the risk management process relating specifically to internal controls and financial reporting risks through assurance over system controls and policies in place

Terms of reference

The terms of reference were reviewed and enhanced in accordance with the 2022 Institute of Directors South Africa guidance for audit committees and approved by the board. The terms of reference continue to be aligned with legislation, regulations and King IV.
