Information and Communication
Husqvarna Group maintains information and communication systems to facilitate correct and complete financial reporting.
The accounting manual and other instructions for reporting are updated when necessary and are reviewed quarterly. In addition, other policies relevant to internal control over financial reporting can be accessed on the Group’s intranet by all relevant personnel. Changes in accounting routines are communicated and explained in quarterly newsletters from the Group accounting function.
The Group has a global whistle blower system. It enables employees to contact an independent third party and report actions or events that involve violations, or suspected violations, of e.g. external laws and regulations or internal policies and guidelines. All calls are logged and a summary of the calls and the actions taken is periodically disclosed to the Audit Committee and made available to the Board.
