The Compliance Committee, which was established under the CSR Promotion Committee, formulates plans to promote awareness of compliance issues, deliberates on the content of internal reports, and makes recommendations.
We established the HORIBA Corporate Philosophy, our Compliance Management Provisions, and our Code of Ethics to enhance our compliance framework and to prevent illegal acts. To facilitate early detection and correction of illegal acts, we also established an internal reporting system that includes a lawyer consultation service as well as an internal e-mail reporting system. Through this system, we will continue to raise employee awareness and enforce observance of laws and regulations. In addition, we will hold seminars on compliance for employees in management positions and request participants to provide guidance to their staff members.
