The Board of Directors is pleased to provide this Statement on Risk Management and Internal Control pursuant to Paragraph 15.26(b) of the Main Market Listing Requirements of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad and as guided by The Statement on Risk Management and Internal Control: Guidelines for Directors of Listed Issuers. The following statement outlines the nature and scope of risk management and internal controls within MISC Berhad (MISC or Company) and its subsidiaries (Group or MISC Group) during the financial year ended 31 December 2021. During the year under review, the BGRC was further supported by the MISC Risk Management Committee (RMC), which comprises Management Committee (MC) members and Heads of Divisions, to reflect the prominence and focus by management on the oversight of the risk management of the MISC Group. In ensuring that the Group’s internal control systems are in place and effective in dealing with risks during the year under review, the BAC was supported by MISC Management Audit Committee (MAC), which comprises MC members and Group Internal Audit (GIA). The Board, via BGRC and BAC, periodically reviews the efficiency and effectiveness of the Group’s risk management and internal control to ensure viability and robustness of the systems. In view of limitations inherent in any process and those risks cannot be eliminated completely, the Group has in place, a system of internal control and risk management designed to manage rather than eliminate the risks that may impede the Group from achieving its objectives. Therefore, it can only provide a reasonable, but not an absolute assurance against material misstatements or losses or the occurrence of unforeseeable circumstances. Thus, the Board adopts a cost-benefit approach to ensure that the expected returns outweigh the cost of risk mitigation.
