Governance at Wolters Kluwer

Wolters Kluwer stands for a high standard of corporate governance, and we are committed to keeping our stakeholders informed. If you cannot find the information you require on these pages, please contact us.

Legal structure

Wolters Kluwer’s ultimate parent company is Wolters Kluwer nv. In 2002, Wolters Kluwer nv abolished the voluntary application of the structure regime (“structuurregeling”). As a consequence, the structure regime became applicable to Wolters Kluwer Nederland bv, which is the parent company of the Dutch operating subsidiaries. Wolters Kluwer International Holding bv is the (in)direct parent company of subsidiaries operating outside of the Netherlands.

The Code

Wolters Kluwer complies with all principles and best practice provisions of the Dutch Corporate Governance Code (the Code), unless stipulated otherwise. This is in accordance with the “comply or explain” principle of the Code. The Corporate Governance section of the 2012 Annual Report provides information on how and why Wolters Kluwer occasionally deviates from the Code.
