Compliance Education

“We continue to emphasize the importance of integrity and reliability in our actions.” This is the fi rst principle we stated in the Management Principles. Through messages from top management, periodic legal training programs, and other activities, we make certain that all employees fully understand NSSMC’s basic policy of ensuring fair management.

In particular, in order to ensure full compliance with the Antimonopoly Act, the Company has designated every December as the Antimonopoly Act Compliance Campaign Month.” Specific activities conducted in December every year include: (1) the President’s direct instruction to all sales and marketing personnel to prevent the recurrence of violations; (2) the holding of seminars and meetings to explain the Company’s voluntary restrictions on making contact with competitors; and (3) the implementation of audits on the status of the administration of these restrictions. Through these activities, NSSMC is continuing to bolster its compliance.

In addition, we have prepared “30 Don’ts of Business Behavior,”a set of compliance guidelines that include simple examples of violations of the Antimonopoly Law and other laws governing business activities, “Guidelines to Prevent Sexual and Power Harassment in the Workplace” to ensure a pleasant environment in the workplace, and the “Handbook for Proper Business Practices”as a guide for proper administrative practices on fi nancial reporting and tax affairs. These original written materials are designed for our employees to conduct fair and appropriate business. By conducting educational programs and e-learning programs for each rank, we cultivate a strong awareness of these guidelines and the importance of complying with laws and regulations among everyone at the NSSMC Group.
