Eviosys’ Culture of Compliance

Eviosys is committed to doing business ethically, with integrity, and in compliance with all applicable laws. We always endeavour to conduct business responsibly and in accordance with our values. To ensure the practice of these commitments, Eviosys has implemented a robust

Compliance Programme designed to define, promote, and ensure (through a system of controls) ethical business operations and uniformity in conduct standards across our company. The programme has four broad objectives:
• Participation of every employee in identifying and addressing potential compliance issues.
• Providing ongoing awareness and compliance training to employees regarding their obligations and applicable
• Implementing a system to monitor, audit, and review the Compliance Programme.
• Implement procedures for reporting and investigating suspected violations of the company’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, and implementing corrective action, including disciplinary measures if appropriate.

The Compliance Programme and its objectives are overseen by the company’s Compliance Management Committee, comprised of the company’s CEO, CFO and Compliance Officer, with the support of external counsel, as required. The implementation of the Compliance Programme is managed by dedicated staff members who ensure appropriate training for employees, in line with their respective positions and responsibilities at Eviosys.

Alongside ongoing training sessions, the company’s senior management and other staff members communicate the various aspects of the Compliance Programme on a regular basis to build awareness among employees of the importance of compliance within the business. The policies and requirements of the Compliance Programme are outlined and specified in the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (“the Code”), the centrepiece of the programme. The Code encompasses a series of policies that are applicable to all Eviosys employees, suppliers, and third-party service providers.


The topics outlined and covered in the Code are:

• Conflicts of interest and corporate opportunities
• Dealings abroad
• Anti- corruption
• Antitrust and competition
• Environment, Health, and Safety
• Confidential information and trade secrets
• Fair treatment of people including equal opportunity, protection against harassment and discrimination, and human rights
• Fair dealing, and veracity in reports and records
• Financial reporting
• Public affairs, including political contributions
• Employee obligations
• Compliance and reporting procedures, including detailed information and contacts for reporting any suspected violation of business ethics, policies, or procedures
• A statement of “No retaliation” policy


All employees joining Eviosys receive a copy of the Code as part of their onboarding process. They are expected to read it, understand it within the context of their functions at the company, and sign it. Employees are also required to read and accept the terms of the Code as part of the company’s mandatory annual compliance training.

Eviosys has established an Ethics Hotline as a part of its Whistleblowing system through which Employees are encouraged to report behaviour that is inconsistent with the company’s Code and other compliance Policies. Reports may also be made through their supervisor, the Compliance Officer, or the Legal department. The Ethics Hotline is available in 15 languages across the company’s sites. We regularly share the details to access our Ethics Hotline and website with employees through compliance training activities, on our intranet, and on our public website. Accessing the hotline enables employees, suppliers and business partners to raise concerns anonymously and confidentially. These concerns are investigated promptly and thoroughly by an appointed team. The number of alerts reported through the hotline and whistleblowing system underscores the awareness of the tool among our employees and third parties.


Eviosys Compliance is pleased to confirm that the culture of compliance is well-anchored within the company:
none of the alerts reported to the hotline has raised a compliance concern. Eviosys will continue to publicise the existence of the hotline and promote its proper use.

Compliance and Eviosys’ business partners

Eviosys considers as business partners any joint venture partner, distributor/dealer, agent, consultant, or any other third party engaged to act on behalf of Eviosys in commercial matters. The laws of many countries require Eviosys to be aware of the business practices of its business partners. To that end, Eviosys has created specific procedures to minimise the likelihood of bribery and corruption and promote compliance with economic sanctions, export controls, anti-money laundering, and other international trade laws.

Thorough due diligence is required before appointing or onboarding any new Eviosys business partner. The initial vetting of a new business partner is done by the employee responsible for the relationship. Eviosys’ legal department must then ensure that the necessary due diligence has been completed, the results are satisfactory, and a written agreement has been signed. The procedures put in place are strictly followed by Eviosys employees. The company’s legal department is regularly informed of any potential developments in transactions with business partners that may give rise to compliance concerns.

Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption

Bribery and corruption matters are covered in our Code, as well as by a separate specific policy. The Anti-Bribery/ Anti Corruption Policy (the “Anticorruption Policy”) applies to all Eviosys companies and employees (both permanent or temporary), and to all representatives acting on behalf of Eviosys, including business partners. Our Anti-Corruption Policy covers compliance with all anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws applicable to Eviosys, including the Sapin II Law, the UK Bribery Act, and the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (the “FCPA”). Relevant employees also receive regular compulsory anti-bribery and anticorruption training, through which they are required to review the Policy and certify that they understand it and will comply with it and applicable law accordingly.


Eviosys is fully committed to a free and competitive marketplace. We comply with the principles of EU, U.S., and other countries’ laws regulating competition. Eviosys has established a Competition Law Compliance Policy that aims to educate our employees on anti-trust matters, and the accepted and prohibited practices during our operations. Considering the constant evolution of competition law and practice, the company’s Legal Department regularly organises specific training modules for colleagues whose roles may expose them to competition law risk. Given the importance and sensitivity of this subject, competition law training is provided by specialised external counsel.


Trade compliance

Eviosys’ International Trade Compliance Policy outlines our obligations for complying with international trade laws that touch on exports, economic sanctions, and other laws applicable to our business. Our Policy also sets forth the processes to follow when engaging in any transaction with a customer, supplier, counterparty or business party in certain countries. This Policy provides corporate oversight of the process, detailing specific obligations including but not limited to due diligence procedures, screening, country risk assessments, and product risk assessment. Eviosys constantly monitors its operations to ensure conformity with the ongoing evolution of economic sanctions and trade regulations in force.
