Internal control reference framework and objectives
REFERENCE FRAMEWORK
The Group has put in place a system of internal control procedures and evaluations initially based on control guidelines prepared by a recognised body, COSO (Committee of Sponsoring Organisations of the Treadway Commission). An analysis reconciling Alstom internal control and risk management framework policies contained in particular in Corporate Instructions, the Internal Control Manual, the Internal Control Questionnaire, the Reporting and Accounting Manual and the reference framework recommended by the AMF (Autorité des marchés financiers) was performed in fiscal year 2007/08. The analysis included both the reference framework and the “Application guide for internal control procedures related to the accounting and financial information published by the issuers”. The analysis outcome shows that Alstom applies the “Reference framework” on internal control recommended by the AMF.
