Accountability body advises the board

The accountability body keeps a close eye on the board of PME. This body includes 16 representatives of the metal and technology sector: 8 members representing employees and 8 members representing pensioners. This is an extra job, which they carry out in addition to their regular job and/or other activities.

What does the accountability body do

The board of PME has to justify its actions to the accountability body. The body subsequently weighs the board's actions. The body also gives the board (unsollicited) advice. At the end of the year, the body judges whether or not the board has taken the right actions. This assessment is laid down in the annual report.

Which themes matter most to the body in 2023?

  1. New pension system
  2. Information management, including IT and cybersecurity
  3. Control of the outsourcing chain
