Compliance or adherence to rules is more complex today than ever. In the global environment, legal challenges are constantly growing. That is why we are constantly adapting our processes and systems to the legal framework. In order to particularly emphasize the importance of compliance with the law, we have anchored it as a corporate principle: “We comply with applicable law and internal guidelines.” Compliance is therefore an integral part of our corporate culture. We operate a compliance management system that enables you as a customer, business partner or employee of the company to act according to uniform and binding structures.
In order for our corporate principle to be observed, it is important to identify potential misconduct at an early stage. Among other things, we achieve this by reporting to us indications of possible compliance violations.
A compliance violation occurs when our employees or towards our employees in Germany or abroad violate applicable law or internal guidelines in the course of their official work. Such violations include, for example, corruption offenses, competition and cartel offences, data protection violations and offenses in accounting, finance and taxes.
In order to be able to uncover and prevent compliance violations, we depend on our employees as well as on our customers and business partners.
If you notice signs of a compliance violation, you can report them through various bodies.
No matter which way you choose, we assure you that every report will be treated as strictly confidential – anonymously if you wish.
If you would like to report indications of compliance violations or have any questions about compliance, please contact our compliance officer.
