The Operational Regime of the Board of Directors of Braskem (BD) establishes the basic roles and responsibilities of the Committees providing support to the BD, as well as the basic guidelines for their constitution and operation.
As described in the Regime, the committees may be standing or "ad hoc". Standing Committees are those that deal with matters the nature and objective of which remain unchanged over the long term.
Standing Committees incorporate the Corporate Governance structure of Braskem and have the objective of advising and assisting the BD in pre-established matters.
Each committee is coordinated by a member of the BD and may only be constituted by a Actual Board Member and/or Alternate Board Member. Other Braskem executives who are duly qualified in the matter given their responsibilities, involvement or specific knowledge may participate in committee meetings as guests, or by solicitation of the Coordinating Board Member.
As advisory and support organs, the expected product of the committees' activities is support for the BD's decisions through recommendations of a non-deliberative nature, grounded in specialized analysis of specific issues that seek to improve the quality and speed of the deliberation process.
