Corporate Ethics and Compliance

Compliance System

Kobe Steel has established a Compliance Committee that serves as an advisory body to the Board of Directors. Three of its members are from inside the Company, including the President. To maintain a fair and neutral perspective, five members come from outside the Company to make up the majority of the Committee and one of them serves as the Chairman of the Committee.

The Compliance Committee makes recommendations on compliance action plans, checks on the progress of compliance activities, and deliberates cases reported through the internal reporting (whistle-blowing) system.

We have appointed a companywide compliance director and a companywide compliance officer. We have also established the Compliance Management Department as a dedicated department to work in partnership with planning and administrative departments and with compliance managers in our business divisions.
