Whistleblower system

The Fritz Winter Eisengießerei GmbH & Co. KG aims to act ethically and in accordance with legal requirements in all business activities; integrity and transparency in our business processes have the highest priority. This applies worldwide and at all organizational levels.

With our compliance system, we bundle a comprehensive system of measures with which we aim to ensure that our business is always in full compliance with the law and our internal principles and rules. This includes, for example, violations of our Code of Conduct or antitrust law, corruption, human rights violations, theft, discrimination or bullying. In addition to our employees, business partners, customers and or other third parties can also submit notifications in the event of specific information on breaches of rules.

To give you the opportunity to submit notifications on possible breaches of laws and rules, we have set up various internationally usable reporting channels. You also have the option of submitting your report without mentioning your name. However, we recommend that you give our Compliance Office an opportunity to contact you, if necessary also via a trusted third party, as otherwise there is no possibility for us to consult with you if there is still a need for clarification, and as the matter may not be clarified further without your cooperation.

Who can report violations?

  • Every employee, including trainees, interns or temporary workers
  • External, e.g. Employees of external service providers
  • Every business partner, e.g. suppliers, customers or cooperation partners and their employees
  • Every third party

Which violations should be reported?

Any specific events that indicate a criminal offense, e.g. fraud, bribery, theft, a violation of other legal provisions or a violation of our internal company regulations, e.g. the company code of conduct, can be reported. Likewise, human rights and environmental risks or rule violations can be reported.

What details should be reported?

  • What type of misconduct does it concern?
  • When and where did it happen?
  • What exactly did the suspicious person or company do?
  • Do you have documents that confirm the allegations?
  • Are there witnesses who can confirm these suspicions?

How to report?

You also have the option to contact our compliance office via our ombudsman by mail with your letter. The lawyer and notary Mr. Florian Möller from the law firm Immel & Möller, Stadtallendorf was appointed as the external ombudsman of the company. Employees and third parties can turn to this neutral body confidentially and anonymously if they observe improper business practices in the company.
