Ethics & Compliance
"Our reputation is based on integrity and the respect of the laws and regulations – both in our domestic countries and in export countries where we operate."
"Many of our activities are not governed by laws or regulations, in which case the principle of integrity must govern our conduct. It is our personal responsibility to apply this principle at all times."
Antoine Bouvier, CEO of MBDA

IFBEC Public Accountability Report 2012
The IFBEC Public Accountability Report 2012, presented at the third IFBEC annual international conference, is a manifestation of IFBEC's continued mission and purpose as it provides members and various stakeholders with data on IFBEC member compliance with the Global Principles and best practice that align with the Global Principles.
Each IFBEC member was asked to participate in the preparation of this report by completing a detailed questionnaire on the management and leadership structure of their Ethics and Anti-Corruption programmes, the implementation of their policies and integrity programmes, and a variety of best practices implemented by their companies. As a member of IFBEC, MBDA participated in this initiative.
