The basic pillar of IDEC's compliance is our unchanging corporate philosophy of "To be a right and fair company".
In addition to our Code of Conduct, we have prepared and distributed the "Compliance Case Q&As" that describes more specific cases based on internal and external examples, and we are sharing and permeating awareness of compliance throughout the organization.
IDEC Group Corporate Ethics and Code of Conduct
Issue of Code of Conduct Ver. 4
Since the publication of the "Code of Conduct" in 2001 as a common guideline for the IDEC Group, we have accumulated editions. The environment surrounding our group has changed drastically these days. The IDEC Group Code of Conduct is published and is well known as a global code of conduct that clarifies the relationship with the IDEC Group's philosophy “the IDEC Way”, in order to unify the awareness of our colleagues who have diverse backgrounds through the entire IDEC Group as One IDEC.
Other Initiatives for Strengthening of Compliance
Acquisition of Approval as an Authorized Exporter
IDEC Corporation has enacted the Regulations for Legal Compliance pertaining to Authorized Export Affairs and established a logistics management setup aimed at achieving compliance with the Customs Act and related legislation. As a result, we obtained approval by Osaka Customs as an "Authorized Exporter*1" based on the Authorized Exporters' Program on April 27, 2009 and received the letter of notification of authorization on May 12, 2009.
Looking forward, in addition to physical distribution management as an Authorized Exporter, we will seek to further strengthen compliance and improve the quality of security trade control in tandem with our overseas Group companies. Through these actions, we will enhance the credibility of the IDEC Group in international transactions.
