Risk assessment

Axfood continuously updates its risk analysis pertaining to the assessment of risks that could lead to errors in financial reporting. As a result of its annual review, the Board makes decisions on which risks are essential to take into account in order to ensure satisfactory internal control in the Group's financial reporting.

In the course of its risk reviews, Axfood identifies a number of items in the financial statements, as well as administrative flows and processes, where there is an elevated risk for errors. The Company works continuously on strengthening controls surrounding these risks. Risks are addressed, assessed and reported by Axfood centrally in cooperation with the Group companies. In addition, risks are addressed in special forums, such as in questions asked by Axfood's establishment and financing committee in connection with store establishment and acquisitions.
