The German Corporate Governance Code defines compliance as the management's responsibility to comply with statutory provisions and internal company guidelines.

The management of exemplifies these values and is committed to upholding compliance within our company. By this we mean not only laws or government regulations, but also guidelines that we follow voluntarily – for example our ISO or environmental certifications. Concrete rules, e.g. on preventing corruption and cartel agreementscompliance with requirements regarding data protection and equal treatment, the observance of regulations on product safety and occupational health and safety are part of our concrete compliance programme. Our compliance culture is intended to convey to all company stakeholders, as well as to the company's customers and suppliers, the importance that attaches to observing rules, and thus to promote the willingness of all stakeholders to behave in accordance with the rules.
