The board must create specialised committees when and as such committees are needed. In addition to the Audit, Remuneration and Nominating Committees described elsewhere in this Module, these may include an Executive Committee to review and make recommendations to the whole board on company actions, a Risk Committee, to identify and minimize specific risks, or an Insider or Prohibition of Market Abuse Committee to manage and provide oversight of the trading of directors and general compliance with market regulations, as well as any other committee required by the CBB or other regulations (e.g. TMA Module).
