The basics of compliance in our company is to approach work with each one of us following the guidelines of conduct such as “To comply with laws and regulations while maintaining the highest ethical standards” as a natural activity.
We have set up a compliance committee in March 2003 and at the same time, implemented a speak-up system and strengthened the compliance system. Since then, we have given the compliance the top priority and in the unlikely event that doubtful points arise, the basic approach is to report them to the superior or the relevant departments immediately.
