Compliance

Compliance Basic Policy

The Denka Group Ethics Policy codifies Groupwide standards of conduct. To ensure that this policy guides the actions of all, the Ethics Committee chaired by the President oversees the overall compliance structure and reports to management on compliance matters. Moreover, under the initiative of the Ethics Committee, such key business units as the Legal, Internal Auditing, HR Strategy, Intellectual Property, Environment and Safety, and Quality Assurance departments ensure thorough legal compliance in their respective areas of specialty.
In October 2019, we also formulated the Standards of Business Conduct. Aiming to live up to the global standard, this move is intended to provide all Group officers and employees at home and abroad with clear and detailed guidelines on the actions they are expected to take in accordance with the provisions of the Denka Group Ethics Policy.
Furthermore, we employ a “legal hazard map” to analyze the significance of compliance-related risks that may affect each Group company with the aim of enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of compliance structures being developed and operated within the Denka Group.

Compliance Structure in Place at Each Department

Utilization of the Legal Hazard Map and Strengthening of Compliance Structure

Having identified more than dozen legal fields closely associated with the Denka Group’s business operations, the Legal Department has analyzed the magnitude of compliance risk in each field and prepared a legal hazard map for each Group company. Employing this map, we provide compliance education in an effective manner consistent with the Denka Global Compliance Program, a Groupwide plan for ensuring thorough legal compliance, while strengthening our compliance structures via, for example, the development and review of Group Policies and other in-house rules applicable to all Group members as well as Denka’s Companywide rules.
Taking advantage of input from legal hazard maps, during fiscal 2019 we focused on implementing compliance education addressing topics associated with the Standards of Business Conduct and labor laws, targeting employees at sales offices and production bases as well as those at Denka Group companies at home and abroad. Currently, we are engaged in the development and review of in-house rules regarding information security and ICT governance intended to secure conformity with ISO 27001, an international standard for information security management.
