Schaltbau Holding AG

The secure way to seek advice and report significant violations

This whistleblowing system (BKMS® System) is at the disposal of employees of the Schaltbau Group or other persons to seek advice or draw attention to significant violations of the code of conduct – in particular illegal business practices.

“Your reports help us to counteract violations at an early stage and prevent or reduce damage to our company and our employees!”

If possible, you should first take your concerns to people in your immediate working environment, such as your supervisor, the company management, human resources or legal department or the works council.

However, if you have reservations concerning this direct contact, or if you have already discussed your concern with a contact person at your company, however without any effect, this whistleblowing system is the appropriate channel for ensuring your concern will receive the required attention.

With this whistleblowing system, you can address critical topics openly and without any fear of reprisals. Employees who report an actual or perceived malpractice in good faith need not fear any adverse consequences. "In good faith" means that the employee is convinced that his/her statement is accurate and true, regardless of whether a subsequent investigation might confirm or refute this statement. It is prohibited to abuse this system by knowingly submitting false or slanderous information.

Information received via this portal is treated as strictly confidential. The provision of this specially secured communication platform allows you to protect yourself through anonymity while simultaneously making an active contribution to the recognition and resolution of compliance violations.

Help us identify and deal with violations as early as possible!
Your report can make a difference!
