Since then, the committee has been composed exclusively of external directors, with a majority of independent directors. Since December 23, 2014, the committee had 4 members, 3 of whom are independent directors. Since November 24, 2015, the committee has 5 members. The mandates of its members are limited to three years and may be re-elected.
