1 1. BACKGROUND RATCH-Australia Corporation Limited (ACN ) (RAC) is an unlisted public company, which is owned by the following two shareholders: (a) RH International (Singapore) Corporation Pte. Ltd. (company number M) (RHIS), which holds 80% of the ordinary shares in RAC (Ordinary Shares); and (b) Transfield Services Limited (ACN ) (TSE), which holds 20% of the Ordinary Shares in RAC, (together, the Shareholders). RAC has Shareholders whereby: (a) Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding PCL, the parent company of RHIS listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand; and (b) TSE listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. RAC is committed to responsible corporate governance and risk management and accordingly, has endorsed this Business Resilience and Disaster Recovery Policy as part of its governance framework. References in this policy to RAC include its related entities. 2. CONTEXT OF THIS POLICY RAC entered into a Transitional Services Agreement (TSA) with Transfield Services (Australia) Pty Ltd (TSAPL). Under the TSA, TSAPL will maintain, identify and implement appropriate risk management policies and procedures. Therefore, as part of the risk management services to be provided by TSAPL, a fully operational and documented business continuity and disaster recovery plan is to be implemented and maintained by TSAPL for RAC. Further to this, RAC also entered into an Operation and Maintenance Alliance Agreement (O&M Agreement) with TSAPL to operate and maintain selected assets on behalf of RAC. The owner of the assets will either be a RAC subsidiary, or a subsidiary of a RAC subsidiary. Each owner of the assets has entered 1

2 into an asset site agreement which incorporates a set of general terms and conditions of the O&M Agreement and ensures that the services are tailored specifically for each asset (Asset Site Agreement). Where RAC outsource other material functions (such as asset management and registry services), RAC will ensure that the relevant agreement for that service provider maintain adequate business continuity and disaster recovery procedures in respect of RAC s operations and records. 3. PURPOSE OF THIS POLICY The purpose of this policy is to ultimately deal with disaster prevention and damage reduction and immediate response activities by documenting the procedures in place to: (a) Deal with the consequences of a disaster occurring that may adversely impact the business of RAC; (b) Ensure effective communication should a disaster occur; (c) Prevent or mitigate those consequences; and (d) Implement immediate response activities. 4. SOURCE OF OBLIGATIONS The sources of obligations behind this policy include: (a) Corporations Act 2001 (Cth); (b) TSA; (c) O&M Agreement; (d) The Occupational Health and Safety Act 2000 (NSW), Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (Qld) and Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (Vic), and any other applicable occupational or work health and safety legislation (including in jurisdictions not referred to above, or on an industry basis), and all associated regulations, codes of practice, applicable standards and guidelines as published from time to time ; 2
