Notification of breaches of the Code of Conduct or other intra-company guidelines

To ensure adherence to the Compliance Guidelines with the aim of combating corruption, anti-trust infringements and economic crime, battenfeld-cincinnati has established a hotline and named an external ombudsman to receive and review notifications of breaches, potential incidents, as well as information on irregularities.

The external ombudsman guarantees whistleblowers objectivity and independence from the company in examining and processing their concerns. It has been agreed between battenfeld-cincinnati and the ombudsman that the parties will refrain from disclosure of the identity of the whistleblower and handing over of documents or other information, unless the whistleblower explicitly agrees to the disclosure. Tips may be given over the phone or in person (in German and English), as well as in writing (email or letter, in any language).
The ombudsman is available daily; in urgent cases, this also means outside office hours and on weekends.
