Compliance – Whistleblower System

Welcome to the website of the whistleblower system of the diconium group.

Conformity with legal requirements and internal compliance rules

Conformity with the law, rules and internal policies is a top priority in the diconium group. Only if rules are complied with and standards met can we avert harm to our company, our employees and our business partners. That is why improper conduct must be detected early on, addressed, and promptly remedied. To do this it is essential that all involved parties be vigilant, and ready to point out potential contraventions where concrete indications are evident. We also take very seriously any information in this regard provided by business partners, customers and any other third parties.

The whistleblower system is there for reporting any serious violations of rules or the law. A violation can be defined here as something that seriously compromises the reputation or financial interests of diconium.

The whistleblower system is an important ingredient of good company leadership. In a process that is fair and transparent the whistleblower system protects the company, the affected parties, and the whistleblower. The system is based on standardized and faster procedures, and confidential and professional processing of information by internal and external experts.

The diconium Group (companies in Europe, USA and India) runs an appropriate and effective Compliance Management System (CMS) designed according to the IDW AssS 980 standard. The diconium group has had this Compliance Management System audited by Rödl & Partner in 2019/2020 according to the IDW AssS 980 standard. Within the scope of this audit, the effectiveness of the CMS was confirmed at the end of the audit period 31.07.2020.
