Compliance Management System
Universal Eisen und Stahl GmbH has implemented a Compliance Management System (CMS) which is in constant development. The internal compliance organisation and the CMS are based on common standards for Compliance Management Systems. Our CMS is based on the three pillars prevention, detection and response. With our CMS, we want to avoid corruption, cartel and competition violations, money laundering, fraud offences and mishandling of potential conflicts of interest and support our employees in achieving this goal in their daily work.
Whistleblower system - Reporting channels for compliance violations
We provide internal and external whistleblowers with various reporting channels in order to obtain information about possible compliance violations. These are secure reporting channels through which our employees and external whistleblowers can provide information about possible violations - confidentiality and, if desired, anonymity is ensured. Information on possible misconduct can also be reported to the Compliance Officer and the Compliance Desk of Universal Eisen und Stahl GmbH via the Management Board or senior management.
All employees are encouraged to raise concerns about serious misconduct in relation to the Code of Conduct, internal policies and/or applicable law without fear or risk of unfair treatment, discrimination or disadvantages.
