Monitoring of plan execution and oversight of its implementation is carried out by the Company's risk managers. 

A report on the actual implementation of the strategic risk management action plan shall be prepared by the Risk Control and Management Department at the end of the reporting period and submitted to the Chairman of the Management Board for approval.
