The ethical corporate management best practice principles of each TWSE/GTSM listed company shall be implemented after the board of directors grants the approval, and shall be sent to the supervisors and reported at a shareholders' meeting. The same procedure shall be followed when the principles have been amended.
For a TWSE/GTSM listed company that has appointed any independent director, when the ethical corporate management best practice principles are submitted for discussion by the board of directors pursuant to the preceding paragraph, the board of directors shall take into full consideration each independent director's opinions. If an independent director objects to or expresses reservations about any matter, it shall be recorded in the minutes of the board of directors meeting. An independent director that cannot attend the board meeting in person to express objection or reservations shall provide a written opinion before the board meeting, unless there is some legitimate reason to do otherwise, and the opinion shall be specified in the minutes of the board of directors meeting.
For a TWSE/GTSM listed company that has established an audit committee, the provisions regarding supervisors in these Principles shall apply mutatis mutandis to the audit committee.
