The Supervisory Board and the Management Board subscribe to the principles for good corporate governance as laid down in the Dutch Corporate Governance Code. The Supervisory Board and the Management Board recommend that shareholders and other stakeholders review these documents on www.beterbedholding.com. A full overview of all best practice provisions is available on this website, stating whether or not the company complies with these individual provisions. The notes included here relate to the Code as amended by the Dutch Corporate Governance Code Monitoring Committee in December 2008.
This policy has resulted in the following documents:

- Audit Committee regulations.
- Remuneration Committee regulations.
- Management Board regulations.
- Code of conduct.
- Whistleblower policy.
- Investor Relations policy.
These documents are also available on the website referred to above.
As usual, Corporate Governance and each substantial change in the corporate governance structure of the company and in its compliance with the Corporate Governance Code will be submitted to the General Meeting of Shareholders for discussion under a separate agenda item during the Annual General Meeting on 19 May 2016.
