Supervisory Board efficiency evaluation

The Supervisory Board of Fresenius SE deliberated on the efficiency evaluation in accordance with clause 5.6 of the Code at its meeting in March 2010.

It reviewed the efficiency of its activities through an open discussion within the full Supervisory Board. A company-specific questionnaire covering the salient points for a self-evaluation serves as the basis for the discussion. Among other things, this included the organization and structuring of the meetings, the amount of information, and how this information was provided. The self-evaluations conducted by the Supervisory Board showed that the Supervisory Board was efficiently organized and that the cooperation between the Management Board and the Supervisory Board functioned very well.
