The issues of preventing and minimizing possible conflicts of interest among members of the Board of Directors are in the area of increased attention of the Company. To prevent possible conflicts of interest in the Company, certain restrictions and requirements are imposed on members of the Board of Directors. Thus, in accordance with the Regulation on the Board of Directors of PJSC TATNEFT, a member of the Board of Directors must refrain from actions that would or could lead to a conflict of interest. There were no conflicts of interest of members of the Board of Directors in the reporting year.

In 2017, within the framework of the project «Improvement of the Integrated Personnel Assessment System of TATNEFT Group», it was proposed to introduce a section «Making personnel decisions on appointments, taking into account a conflict of interests», which will allow assessing the risk of a conflict of interests at the stage of personnel decisions made.
