Audit & Non-Audit Services Pre-Approval Policy

To comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and in accordance with the Charter of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (the "Company"), the Audit Committee is responsible for the appointment, compensation and oversight of the work of the Company's independent auditor.

As part of this responsibility, the Audit Committee is required to pre-approve all audit and permitted non-audit services performed by the Company's independent auditor in order to assure that the auditor's independence from the Company is not compromised.

Accordingly, the Audit Committee has adopted the Audit and Non-Audit Services Pre-Approval Policy which sets forth the procedures and the conditions pursuant to which services proposed to be performed by the independent auditor may be pre-approved.
