This means:

  • We respect and protect the globally applicable regulations for the protection of human rights as fundamental and universally applicable requirements. This includes, in particular, that no child may be forced to work. Child labour is not accepted in the conduct of our own business or in business conducted by suppliers or subcontractors.

  • Of particular importance to us are the national and international export control regulations/export and import laws as well as the Customs Code or Union Customs Code. We are committed to ensuring compliance with these regulations in our companies through targeted information and organizational measures.
