The Committee meets as necessary and oversees the disclosure of information in accordance with the EU Market Abuse Regulation and the FCA’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules. The Disclosure Committee receives input and advice from relevant individuals and advisors as required. These include the Group’s brokers and external legal counsel.

Compliance Committee

An Executive Compliance Committee was established in January 2019, replacing the existing management compliance committee (which has been reorganized as the Compliance Administration Council, which now reports to the Compliance Committee). The Compliance Committee comprises all members of the Executive Committee and is chaired by the Chief Integrity and Compliance Officer. The Compliance Committee meets monthly and is responsible for overseeing compliance with applicable laws, rules and regulations related to Indivior’s business operations excluding compliance with securities regulations and financial reporting requirements.
