Murata has established a Compliance Promotion Committee, a subordinate body of the CSR Management Committee. We are deliberating on, and making decisions regarding, the basic direction for revisions to the Corporate Ethics Policy and Code of Conduct, and the draft and implementation of publicity activities.
We have also appointed Compliance Promotion Leaders in each division in order to ensure that all of our employees are aware of our Corporate Ethics Policy and Code of Conduct. The Compliance Promotion Leaders take e-learning courses to gain knowledge that they pass on to other employees at compliance promotion meetings held in each department.
Murata has established three channels by means of which users can discuss compliance-related questions or problems by email, telephone, etc. The first of these is an in-house channel, operated by the secretariat of the Compliance Promotion Committee. The second, Murata Group Non-Compliance Hotline (an external channel operated by Dial Service Co., Ltd.), enables users to consult with specialists by telephone. The third is a channel that allows users to contact a Board with an Audit Committee. All of these channels can be used anonymously. The privacy of users is protected, and the system can be used without fear of negative consequences.
In addition to Murata employees (executives, regular employees, temporary staff, part-time employees, and contract workers, with the exception of retired employees) and their family members, the compliance reporting and consultation channels can also be used by the employees of temporary employment agencies working in Murata workplaces, the employees of subcontracting companies, Murata customers, and suppliers.
