The company must have a board of at least one member
The company’s board must consist of one or more members, but still so that the company’s articles of association can set limitations on how many members the board can have.
The board is normally elected by the general meeting
It is normally the general meeting that elects the company’s board, cf. Section 6-3 of the Companies Act. If the company has a corporate assembly, the corporate assembly has taken over the general meeting’s authority to elect the board.
Employees are entitled to representation on the company’s board if the company has more than 30 employees and does not have a company assembly. How many members can be appointed by employees depends on how many employees the company has and how big the board is. Separate rules apply to the appointment of board members in group relations .
From time to time it is stipulated in the company’s articles of association that parts of the board can be elected by others, but still so that more than half of the board’s members must always be elected by the general meeting, cf. Section 6-3 (3) of the Companies Act.
Election of the board must be registered both on the dCompany platform and in the Brønnøysund registers
The board must be registered in the dCompany platform (the role register) and in the Brønnysund registers. By registering the board in the dCompany platform, the platform will operate with the correct board even if the board election is not currently registered in the Brønnøysund registers.
