High governing standards

Skuld has a tradition of high governing standards. Skuld's Statutes set out the structure and roles of the governing bodies, how they are elected and their mandates.

The association's more detailed policies, guidelines and instructions cover the responsibilities of the Board of Directors, its Chair of the Board and the President and CEO. The purpose is independence and control in governing Skuld, while at the same time ensuring equal terms for equal members.

The General Meeting

The General Meeting is Skuld's highest authority. All members have a right to attend the General Meeting. The votes of members which are entitled to vote are calculated based on the member's total gross tonnage entered and Estimated Total Call.

The Committee

The Committee, which is composed of member representatives, supervises Skuld's business and elects the Board.

The Board of Directors

The President and CEO is responsible for the day-to-day management of the association and communicates with the Board of Directors on matters of importance to Skuld. The President and CEO shall ensure the association's compliance with all applicable legislation and adherence to the Code of Conduct of the company.
