Compliance is about acting in accordance with the rules that govern our behaviour. These rules can be externally imposed through laws or regulations, or internally defined through policies, procedures and controls. Acting responsibly, in an ethically correct and lawful manner is just as important to the success of BARTEC as our innovative force, technical performance, quality standards and customer orientation.
Compliance is an essential element to ensure sustainable success of our business, protects employees, managers and the underlying organization from unnecessary risks, and highlights the right way where doubt arises. To identify compliance risks at an early stage BARTEC offers employees and business partners the following contact point firstname.lastname@example.org to report possible compliance infringements. The data is handled with absolute confidentiality; incoming messages are not traced and the senders are not registered.
The Compliance organization of BARTEC operates at three levels: prevention, detection and response. Compliance is responsible for all compliance-relevant activities, helps to ensure that regulations are met, coordinates and conducts trainings and supports the design and implementation of globally binding internal standards. BARTEC installed a group-wide overarching Compliance & Legal Affairs function to integrate Compliance at management level.
