BASF Report 2023

Statement by the Board of Executive Directors and Assurance Pursuant to Sections 297(2) and 315(1) of the German Commercial Code (HGB)

The Board of Executive Directors of BASF SE is responsible for preparing the Consolidated Financial Statements and Combined Management’s Report of the BASF Group.

The BASF Group Consolidated Financial Statements for 2023 were prepared according to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), as adopted by the European Union, as well as the IFRSs in the version adopted by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), London.

We have established effective internal control and steering systems in order to ensure that the BASF Group’s Combined Management’s Report and Consolidated Financial Statements comply with applicable accounting rules and to ensure proper corporate reporting.

The internal control and risk management system we have set up is specifically designed to enable the Board of Executive Directors to identify material risks early on and take appropriate defensive measures as necessary. The appropriateness and effectiveness of the internal control and risk management system are continually audited throughout the Group by our Corporate Audit department.

To the best of our knowledge, and in accordance with the applicable reporting rules, the Consolidated Financial Statements of the BASF Group give a true and fair view of the net assets, financial position and results of operations of the Group, and the Combined Management’s Report of the BASF Group includes a fair review of the development and performance of the business as well as position of the BASF Group, together with a description of the principal opportunities and risks associated with the expected development of the BASF Group.
