Compliance guidelines

The provisions of the Code of Conduct are supplemented and fleshed out by the Group guidelines as follows:

  • Antitrust law

    This guideline describes the prohibition of agreements restricting competition; establishes rules for dealing and interacting with industry associations, professional associations, and/or other sector organizations; and defines particular rules of conduct for employees of the voestalpine Group.

  • Business Conduct

    Among other things, this guideline regulates conduct relative to gifts, invitations, and other benefits; donations, sponsoring, and ancillary activities; as well as the private purchase of goods and services by employees from customers and suppliers.

  • Guideline on dealings with sales representatives and consultants

    This guideline prescribes the procedure to be followed prior to contracting or engaging sales representatives, marketing and other consultants, or lobbyists. An objective analysis of the prospective business partner’s environment and scope of activities prior to establishing business relations serves to ensure that the business partners, too, comply with all applicable laws and the voestalpine Code of Conduct.

The Code of Conduct and the Compliance Guidelines apply Group-wide and are available in 14 languages.
