Quantron AG Whistleblower System

Complying with statutory regulations and internal rules, and the Code of Conduct, has top priority at QUANTRON. Misconduct must therefore be identified at an early stage. The whistleblower system enables employees worldwide and external whistleblowers to report breaches of regulations.

Rule violations posing high risks include, for example, offenses relating to corruption, breaches of antitrust law and violations of anti-money laundering regulations, as well as violations of binding technical provisions or violations in connection with environmental regulations. Personal matters, such as incidents of sexual harassment or human rights violations, are also considered high-risk rule violations.

QUANTRON encourages anyone inside or outside the company who observes or suspects violations in connection with the company to contact the reporting office without fear of retaliation and to express the information openly.

Whistleblowers who report possible violations based on concrete evidence are protected by the company. The confidentiality of such statements is guaranteed. Employees who feel they have suffered disadvantages as a result of them reporting a violation are protected by the reporting office. Discrimination or intimidation of an employee for reporting a violation is itself a violation of our Integrity Code and results in disciplinary actions under labor law.

Whistleblowers can also contact the reporting office anonymously, as far as this is permitted by national legislation. At the same time, it is very helpful for the reporting office if whistleblowers can be contacted (e.g. via an anonymous e-mail address) so that they can be asked questions that could be useful for the investigation. If a whistleblower discloses their identity but does not wish it to be passed on to other departments within the company, this request will be complied with.
