CORPORATE GOVERNANCE 

The Board recognises the importance of maintaining appropriately high standards of corporate governance and has made it a priority to adopt systems of control and accountability as the basis for the administration of corporate governance and put in place governance structures that would be expected in light of the Group’s size, stage of development and resources. In accordance with changes to the AIM Rules implemented in September 2018, the Board has reviewed which recognised corporate governance code to apply to the Company on a comply or explain basis, as required by AIM Rule 26. Accordingly, the Board has decided to adhere to the ASX Corporate Governance Council's Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations, third edition (the “Principles & Recommendations” or the “Code”), and has followed each recommendation to the extent considered appropriate for the Company’s corporate governance practices. Where the Company’s corporate governance practices follow a recommendation, the Board has made appropriate statements reporting on the adoption of the recommendation. Where, after due consideration, the Company's corporate governance practices depart from a recommendation, the Board has made full disclosure and reasoning for the adoption of its own practice, in compliance with the ASX “if not, why not” regime and the comply or explain basis required by AIM Rule 26.

Please refer to the Company's Annual Report for its latest Corporate Governance Statement.  A brief description of the responsibilities of the members of the board of directors, the corporate governance committees and the executive committee, together with their terms of reference can be accessed HERE
