FUCHS compliance management system

Compliance describes all measures, which ensure the lawful conduct of a company, its management and employees with regard to statutory legal requirements and internal corporate policies regarding the intergrity and ethical business-conduct of FUCHS.

In order to avoid breaches of statutory laws and internal corporate rules, FUCHS has set up a group-wide compliance organisation that serves as the competent partner for all employees, executives and directors of FUCHS. 

FUCHS has implemented a global Compliance Management System (CMS) which enables the FUCHS group of companies to fulfil both legal requirements as well as internal ethical and governance standards that are applicable to the FUCHS business. We want to raise awareness regarding areas with a specific legal risk exposure, which require a particularly careful approach and/or consultation with the respective superior, the local compliance officer or the FUCHS Group Compliance Office in Mannheim. This inlcudes i.a. the following areas:                                                                                                                                                    

  • Integrity Compliance: i.a. prevention of conflicts of interest, bribery and corruption in business transactions and when dealing with business partners, public officials including employees of state-owned companies                                                                                                                                                                                                 
  • Anti-Trust and Competition Compliance: Minimizing the risk of competition law violations when dealing with sensitive information or being in close contact with e.g.  competitors or distributors

The FUCHS CMS is designed to prevent employees and management from risks resulting of violating applicable laws by                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

  • informing and training them (online and face-to face)
  • providing support and advice in their daily work
  • coordinating the relevant internal compliance-policies and standards 
  • monitoring the legal developments and impacts on FUCHS
