Internal Control System
Based on the FANUC Code of Conduct, which is derived from the basic principle of "strict preciseness and transparency", we have established basic rules for compliance. In addition, we have established detailed rules for compliance and deployed them internally through rules for an anti-corruption, the prevention of insider trading and the management of confidential information, the Antimonopoly Act, and rules for the protection of personal information, etc.
Promotion Framework and Initiatives
FANUC has established a system under which officers and employees of FANUC and its domestic subsidiaries as well as suppliers can make whistleblowing reports to FANUC's internal and independent external contacts thorough hotlines. We are also gradually expanding those hotlines to overseas group companies so that officers and employees may report directly to FANUC Headquarters.
In response to whistleblowing reports from both Japan and overseas, we strive to enhance the protection of whistleblowers to ensure that they are not treated unfavorably in any way (including confidentiality of the contents of the whistle-blowing), by the Whistleblowing System Operation Rules, etc.
Whistleblowing reports can be made anonymously at any time (24/7), and are available in multiple languages.
Risk Management Committee
To address risks that may hinder the continuity of our business, the enhancement of our corporate value, or the sustainable development of our corporate activities, we have established a Risk Management Committee and risk management policies, and we are conducting appropriate risk management under the supervision of the Board of Directors. Further, the Internal Audit Department, which reports directly to the President and CEO, conducts internal audits of risk management.
Issues related to compliance are discussed by the Compliance Committee, which is chaired by the Senior Executive Vice President, and important issues are always reported to the Board of Directors and the President and CEO. In addition, the Management Meeting, which mainly comprised of the executives of each business divisions, deliberates also on these issues. Furthermore, the latest cases of whistleblowing is reported to the Board of Directors at least twice a year, so that adequate deliberations are made on related compliance issues as necessary.
