Department Info


The Internal audit department performs an independent, and objective assurance and consulting activity designed to boost added value and improve the organization’s operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of Risk Management, Internal controls, BCM, and Sustainable Management.


The Internal audit team provides insights and recommendations to management and BOD based on analyses and assessments of data and business processes.


The J-SOX regulation mandates that all publicly traded companies must establish internal controls and procedures for financial reporting and must document, test, and maintain those controls and procedures to ensure their effectiveness. This to help ensure reasonable assurance towards the stakeholders by improving the reliability of corporate disclosures.


The J-SOX department independently assesses the internal controls and procedures of the organization.
