Dutch Corporate Governance Code

The discussions on corporate governance in the Netherlands resulted in the 'Dutch Corporate Governance Code' which became effective as of 1 January 2004. On the basis of almost five years experience with the code, the Monitoring Committee Dutch Corporate Governance Code (also known as the 'Frijns Committee') made an updated version of the code which became effective as of 1 January 2009. From the 2009 financial year onwards, Dutch listed companies are to report on their application of the revised Dutch Corporate Governance Code and to explain any deviations from its best-practice provisions.

ING published a booklet, in which you will find the principles and best-practice provisions of the revised Dutch Corporate Governance Code and the way ING Groep N.V. applies these.

On 27 April 2010 the General Meeting approved the implementation by ING Groep N.V. of the revised Dutch Corporate Governance Code.
