The Company's Auditing Div. is an independent unit that is subordinate to the Board of Directors. The Auditing Div. is also in charge of the examination and assessment of the company's internal control, in order to increase the operating performance of the Company.

The names of these Auditing staff are to be listed in the Market Observation Post System at the end of January every year.
In order to comply with the “Guidelines for Establishment of Internal Control Systems by Public Companies” promulgated by the Securities and Futures Bureau, Financial Supervisory Commission, the Company has thus set up two systems, the “Internal Control System of EVA Airways Corp.” and the “Internal Auditing Implementation Rules of EVA Airways Corp.”, which are established on the basis of the operating environment of airline industries. The establishment of these systems provide guidelines for the internal audit.

Finally, in respect of the details of annual internal audit plan on how to conduct the internal audit, the findings of any deficiencies in internal control on departments and the improvements on any extraordinary irregularities will also be stated in the Market Observation Post System which acts in accordance with the pertinent rules.
