Institutions and bodies

General assembly

The general assembly is an annual meeting of all members of AUDEG and is its top-most body. The meeting takes place in Frankfurt (Main). All fundamental decisions concerning the cooperative and its politics are made by the general assembly.

Supervisory board

The supervisory board is elected by the general assembly and represents the members' interest within the management. It also has to supervise the work of the management in name of the membership, but also to lend it support and advice. The supervisory board is elected for three years and is currently made up of Holger Bohne, Dr. Johannes Loxen (chairman) and Ingo Wolff.


The management manages the cooperative on its own authority in accordance with current law and the cooperative's statute. Extensive experience in auditing, IT-security and as independent auditors, the members of the management are ideally equiped to govern AUDEG and to make decisions in the best interest of its members. Management is made up of two honory members, picked by the supervisory board. These are currently Dr. Chen-Yu Lin and Mr. Michael Schmid.


Members of AUDEG - Deutsche Auditoren eG are enjoying the previlege to represent their interests in general assemblies, supervisory boards and working groups. Additionally, through our Competency Directory they gain access to our versitile platform to present their own competencies and industry experience. They can also participate in our exclusive training courses.

Working groups & committees

Because of our activities as certification body, neutral consultants and representation of german auditors we place a special emphasis on keeping all these areas strictly separated. To ensure this strict separation, our members are involved in a number of working groups and committees which supervise AUDEG's work and its many foci.
