DECIDES:

A.   The Corporate Governance Committee (hereafter the “Committee”) is renewed with the following revised mandate:

I.   Objectives

1.   The overarching objective of the Corporate Governance Committee is to contribute to economic efficiency, sustainable growth and financial stability by improving corporate governance policies and supporting good corporate practices, in Members and Partners. Further, the Corporate Governance Committee should aim to effectively fulfil its responsibilities as an international standard setter in corporate governance, including with respect to the Recommendation of the Council on Principles of Corporate Governance [C(2015)84] , which is one of the Financial Stability Board’s twelve key standards, and the Recommendation of the Council on Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises [C(2015)85].

2.   Mid-level objectives include:

a)   To improve the capacity of policy makers, regulators and market participants to develop and implement efficient and cost effective corporate governance rules and policies.

b)   To improve the capacity of policy makers, regulators and market participants to identify and respond to market developments that may influence the effectiveness and relevance of existing corporate governance policies and practices.

c)   To improve corporate governance of state owned enterprises and practices for implementing privatisation policies.

II.   Working Methods

3.   To achieve these objectives, the Committee shall:

a)   Provide an effective system to monitor implementation and effectiveness of agreed corporate governance standards and initiatives at national, regional and global level.

b)   Identify market developments that may influence the effectiveness and relevance of existing corporate governance policies and practices, and provide timely policy advice.

c)   Serve as a forum for a policy dialogue among policy makers, regulators, market participants and other stakeholders.

d)   Use effective means and fora for dissemination and communication of its work.

III.   Co-operation arrangements

4.   The Committee shall:

a)   Promote co-ordination of all work carried out within the Organisation in the field of corporate governance, and present proposals for this purpose to other Committees or to Council.

b)   Actively collaborate with other relevant bodies of the OECD on cross-cutting issues related to corporate governance.

c)   Engage with Partners and co-operate with the World Bank and other international organisations and bodies to support improvements in corporate governance globally.

d)   Consult and share information, as appropriate, with BIAC and TUAC, as well as other stakeholders.

B.   The mandate of the Corporate Governance Committee shall remain in force until 31 December 2021."
