58-43-16.26Internal audit function to be organizationally independent.

In order to ensure that an internal auditor remains objective, the internal audit function shall be organizationally independent. The internal audit function may not defer ultimate judgment on audit matters to others and shall appoint an individual to head the internal audit function who has direct and unrestricted access to the board of directors. Organizational independence does not preclude dual-reporting relationships.
