Framework for our actions

Compliance - adherence to applicable laws, regulations, standards and guidelines - is the basis of our actions. Observing the rules is a given. We see it as our duty to absolutely reject doing business or entering into a transaction if there is even the slightest suspicion it does not comply with these rules. To give our business partners and employees an insight into our understanding of values and the law, we have a Code of Conduct and other guidelines in place that serve as binding standards for the actions of our employees. These compliance guidelines provide a framework for the other more detailed regulations.
