Compliance today is way more a complex topic than ever before. In a global environment, we are facing growing legal challenges. That’s why we are constantly adapting our processes and systems to the legal framework. To emphasize the significance of compliance, we have anchored it as a corporate principle: “We comply with applicable laws and internal policies.” Thus, compliance means practiced value of our corporate culture. We have a compliance management system in place that allows you as a customer, business partner or company employee to act in accordance with uniform and binding structures.

It is important to identify potential misconduct at an early stage to ensure that our corporate principle can be complied with. We achieve this, among other things, by being notified of potential compliance violations. A compliance violation exists if applicable law or internal policies are violated in Germany or abroad by or vis-a-vis our employees in the performance of their duties. Such violations include, for instance, corruption offenses, competition and antitrust offenses, data protection breaches, as well as accounting, financial and tax offenses. To detect and prevent compliance violations, we rely on both our employees and customers and business partner. Should you notice any signs of a compliance violation, you can report them through various channels.

No matter which one you choose, rest assured that every report will be treated strictly confidentially – anonymously if you wish.
