MBDA has put in place an independent compliance organization comprising:
- A Group Compliance Officer reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer, in charge of MBDA's Integrity Programme; and a compliance officer network within the MBDA Group
- The Business Ethics Committee, which is a dedicated corporate committee responsible for overseeing the implementation of MBDA's Business Ethics Policy and Procedure, issueing the appropriate recommendations and disseminating MBDA's high business ethics standards on a continuing basis throughout the whole MBDA Group.
The MBDA Integrity Programme
The MBDA Integrity Programme is organized in 3 phases: prevent; monitor; and respond. It is constantly updated, developed and improved to meet the international best practices in the field of ethics and compliance. The Integrity Programme progress status is reviewed by the Business Ethics Committee.
Policies and procedures supporting the implementation of the Code of Ethics are regularly analysed and strengthened where appropriate to ensure employees have clear guidance on how to conduct business and act in a responsible way.
Awareness sessions and training on business ethics matters are continuously reinforced and monitored through a dedicated training programme.
Specific information related to ethics and compliance are available to employees through the company intranet.
