Internal reporting office of the Scheer Group

Effective compliance is a top priority for the Scheer Group and its companies. An important part of this is the promotion of a culture in which unlawful behavior can be reported and addressed. Violations of applicable law must be identified at an early stage in order to initiate appropriate countermeasures and avert potential damage to those affected, employees, business partners, customers, the company and other third parties. The "Compliance Ombudsman" and the ISO 27001-certified whistleblower system at are components of the Scheer Group's compliance system and compliance culture.
