Ethics are central to SOCOTEC's actions
Compliance with local and international laws and regulations plays a key role in the SOCOTEC US's requirements. This fundamental principle is a requirement that guarantees the Group's integrity and upholds its reputation.
SOCOTEC's commitment to ethics and transparency is affirmed through its Code of Ethics, which is binding on all of its employees worldwide. This means that every Group company is responsible for ensuring that the Code of Ethics is implemented and enforced, based on the obligations and particularities of its business activities and location.
An annual message goes out to all employees to inform them of the existence of the Code of Ethics.
Christopher Schimpf - General Counsel, US - is the local Compliance Officer.
A reporting procedure allows all Group employees and natural persons to report any crime, offence or threat to public interest.
The Group Ethics Committee is tasked with enforcing the Code of Ethics, receiving reports of unethical behavior and overseeing the enforcement of the provisions of anti-corruption laws. It has three Group members:
- Bastien Soret, General Counsel, SOCOTEC Group
- Sébastien Botin, Human Resources Director, SOCOTEC Group
- Clémence Cattelain, Business Lawyer, SOCOTEC Group
