Compliance Policy and System
Meiden Group Code of Conduct (COC) defines that we shall strive to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations of our business-related matters, other applicable laws and regulations at home and abroad, social and ethical norms, and its underlying spirit, and we shall conduct our businesses with strong corporate ethics and good social common sense.
Under this policy, the Meiden Group aims to sincerely engage in activities to live up to the trust of customers and society. Directors, executive officers, and general managers of Meidensha and each Group company, play a central role in promoting compliance in each of their workplaces, in accordance with the Meiden Group Compliance Promotion Rules.
Besides such workplace schemes, we also have a Compliance Committee set up in place, which lays down policies concerning compliance activities, organizes compliance training, handles whistleblowers, and expresses opinions and provides solutions to problems relating to a range of compliance issues that may arise.
In order to enhance the communication and reporting system, we appointed a Compliance Manager in each workplace to serve as a link between the Compliance Committee and the workplace by reporting to the Committee issues discussed and problems found in the workplace. Thus, we are engaged in activities that promote compliance, while ensuring communication among the Meiden Group companies.
In fiscal 2018, we enhanced management and expanded systems in accordance with the Consumer Affairs Agency’s Guidelines for Whistleblower Systems as group-wide compliance initiatives. Also, in order to enhance overseas compliance, we are continuing to promote the implementation of internal control systems at overseas group companies.
