Corporate governance is the collection of mechanisms, processes and relations used by various parties to control and to operate a corporation.

Effective corporate governance is essential if a business wants to set and meet its strategic goals. A corporate governance structure combines controls, policies and guidelines that drive the organization toward its objectives while also satisfying stakeholders' needs. A corporate governance structure is often a combination of various mechanisms. The foremost sets of controls for a corporation come from its internal mechanisms. These controls monitor the progress and activities of the organization and take corrective actions when the business goes off track.

These disclosures include, among others, information on the system of control over financial reporting. This information seems particularly relevant as the control system over financial reporting integrates selected internal and external corporate governance mechanisms around the accounting information system [ Gad, ]. The system of control over financial reporting is considered as a type of defense against irregularities in financial reporting [ Bardhan et al. Disclosures about the system of control over financial reporting are important for investors who can use this information to control the activities of management [ Hermanson, ].
