Ethics Channel

At SYSTEMS MAINTENANCE SERVICES EUROPA S.A. we firmly believe in the importance of fostering a safe, ethical, equal, and trusting environment for all our employees, clients and partners in general.

For this reason, we have implemented a robust Ethics Channel that allows anyone to report possible misconduct or ethical violations that they have detected in our organization. A channel where any possible non-compliance or irregularity can be reported to the organization, as described in Spanish Law 2/2023, of February 20th, regulating the protection of people who report regulatory and anti-corruption violations.

WHICH FACTS CAN BE NOTIFIED?

You can report through the Ethics Channel facts that you consider may constitute a breach of the legal regulations, the Code of Ethics or any internal regulations in force, such as:

  • Conduct related to fraud and corruption.
  • Behaviors related to safety, health and hygiene at work.
  • Discrimination and harassment in the workplace.
  • Conduct relating to information security, data protection and stock markets.
  • Anti-competitive practices.
  • Conduct contrary to human rights or damage to the environment.
  • Other possible criminal or administrative violations.

MAIN FEATURES:

Confidentiality: We understand that confidentiality is critical to encouraging people to report. We guarantee absolute confidentiality throughout the process and protect the identity of the reporting person to the extent permitted by law. It includes the possibility of making the alert anonymously.

Impartial Investigation Process: Once a complaint is filed, our team of experts will thoroughly investigate the matter objectively and diligently in accordance with internal regulations and applicable law. Throughout the entire process, the rights of those involved must be respected, in particular the presumption of innocence.

Protection against retaliation: We do not tolerate any form of retaliation against whistleblowers in good faith. We are committed to safeguarding the rights and integrity of those who dare to report any wrongdoing. We will take appropriate disciplinary action against any individual who retaliates against a whistleblower.

Resolution and Follow-up: After the investigation is concluded, we will take the necessary actions to address the problem identified and, where possible, take corrective action to prevent future violations. In addition, we are committed to keeping the whistleblower informed of the progress and resolution of their complaint whenever possible and permitted by law.
