(Committee convener and procedures for calling meetings)
The Committee shall convene at least twice a year, and may call a meeting at its discretion whenever necessary.
In calling a Committee meeting, a notice setting out the reasons for the meeting shall be given to the Committee members earlier than seven days in advance of the meeting. In emergency circumstances, however, the meeting may be called on shorter notice.
The convener and chairperson of a Committee meeting shall be an independent director. If the Committee convener is on leave, unable to convene a meeting for any reason, or required to recuse himself/herself pursuant to Article 5, Paragraph 2, the convener shall appoint another independent director on the Committee to act as a convener, or, when necessary, may appoint another member of the Committee to act as a convener. If the convener does not make such an appointment, the other Committee members shall select one independent director to serve as a convener.
The Committee may request management-level personnel of relevant departments, internal auditors, accountants, legal consultants or other personnel of the Company to attend the meeting and provide related information as required, provided such delegates shall leave upon any discussion or voting being conducted.
