Evaluation Management and Supervision Act

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

On 1 January 2013 the Management and Supervision (adjustment) Regulations Act public and private limited companies (hereinafter referred to as the Act) came into effect. During the parliamentary debate in the Senate the Minister of Security and Justice had pledged that the Act including the amendments was to be evaluated after three years. The reason for the evaluation was, in particular, the restriction of the number of supervisory positions carried out by one person, in public and private limited companies and foundations, adopted by way of amendment into the Act.

The Act has, in respect of diverse subjects, led to the implementation of new statutory provisions and to changes in existing statutory provisions. The evaluation research has, in particular, focused on three subjects:

  1. The one-tier board model;
  2. Limitation of the number of supervisory positions for directors and supervisors;
  3. Target figure of 30% women on the boards of directors and supervisory boards.
