Compliance at iwis
As a family-run company, iwis places exceptionally high value on reliable behavior and integrity. Our high ethical values determine how we at iwis work with our colleagues, customers, suppliers and other business partners on a daily basis.
Our Code of Conduct sets standards for business behavior with integrity that go far beyond compliance with laws and rules, thus ensuring our successful and sustainable business activities in the future.
The iwis Code of Conduct
For iwis, compliance is a question of attitude. Acting correctly - in accordance with the law - is not a gut decision, but requires clear structures and guidelines that can be relied upon.
It also requires structures that regulate decisions for the benefit of all and ensure respectful and goal-oriented cooperation. These structures and standards are anchored in our Code of Conduct, which applies throughout the iwis Group, and are communicated transparently. In addition, it is important to us that our employees receive regular training on compliance topics so that our high standards can be met on a permanent basis.
The iwis Whistleblowing System
Our primary goal is to avoid misconduct. If an incident does occur, we do not tolerate compliance violations and consistently and transparently investigate misconduct against applicable law, internal policies and our Code of Conduct.
In order to detect and remedy misconduct, it is first necessary for us to become aware of compliance violations. For this reason we offer our employees, customers, suppliers and other business partners worldwide the opportunity to report potential compliance violations via our whistleblowing system. If desired, anonymous reports can also be submitted in this system. However, we ask whistleblowers to set up a secure mailbox in the system so that they can communicate - completely anonymously if they wish - with the compliance staff at iwis.
The iwis Whistleblowing System is a web-based whistleblowing system of the company EQS Group AG. Data is stored exclusively on security-certified servers of EQS Group in Germany. Only iwis Compliance employees have access to the information stored there, and they treat this data confidentially to the extent permitted by law.
