The results of this paper indicate that the size of the audit committee (SAC), the availability of risk monitoring or risk management committees (RMC) and the quality of external auditors (AUD) are significantly associated with corporate risk disclosure practices (CRD). These empirical results show that the presence of risk monitoring committee, the quality of external auditors, and the size of the audit committee are the main factors determining the extent of risk disclosure, especially for non-financial companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange.
