Supervisory Board

In accordance with the Statutes, the Supervisory Board of BASF SE comprises twelve members. Pursuant to Section 35 Paragraph 1 of the Act on the Participation of Employees in a European Company (SE-Beteiligungsgesetz – “SEBG”) and the Agreement Concerning the Involvement of Employees in BASF SE (Employee Participation Agreement) signed on November 15, 2007 by company management and the representatives of BASF Group’s European employees, seats on the board are accorded following the principle of parity. The six shareholder representatives on the Supervisory Board of BASF SE are elected by the Shareholders’ Meeting. By way of derogation from Section 40 (2) of the Council Regulation (EC) No. 2157/2001, the six employee representatives are not elected by the Shareholders’ Meeting, but appointed by the representative body of the employees, the BASF Europa Betriebsrat, in accordance with the Employee Participation Agreement. The term of office of the Supervisory Board commenced following the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on April 30, 2009, in which the shareholder representatives on the Supervisory Board were elected. It terminates upon conclusion of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting which resolves on the discharge of members of the Supervisory Board for the fourth complete financial year after the term of office commenced; this is the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting in 2014. On May 6, 2011, the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting elected Anke Schäferkordt as a member of the Supervisory Board to succeed Stephen K. Green, who resigned his Supervisory Board membership at the close of December 16, 2010. Anke Schäferkordt had already been appointed to the Supervisory Board, effective December 17, 2010, upon request of the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, by decision of the Ludwigshafen district court on November 18, 2010.
