Corona: Corporate governance and operational impact

This article is part of our continually updated corona resource center.

Always verify whether your company has sufficient arrangements in place to be able to comply with possible travel restrictions or to bring back staff if necessary:

  • Can agreements be signed without physical presence? For example, check whether a qualified electronic signature would be useful in your case to avoid risks.
  • Do your statutes allow you to hold board and management meetings via video or telephone conference?
  • The physical presence requirement, e.g. during tests, exams etc, should be reviewed in general.
