Compliance Management System

 

Corporate governance refers to a number of principles adopted by a company, aiming to uphold its performance and the interests of its shareholders and of all stakeholders.

Ensuring Compliance is a priority for the Company's Board of Directors. Compliance stands for a solid commitment to the principles of integrity, transparency, fairness, professionalism, team spirit, and of respect for the rules; principles which are essential to govern the operation of the Group.

To that end, the Management has adopted and implemented a Compliance Management System (CMS), regarding the compliance of all (employees and management) with the legislation in force, with the Code of Conduct and with internal Policies, aiming to avoid risks and other legal consequences for the Group and its employees. In so doing, the benefit is for all: the Group per se, the employees, the customers, the suppliers and the shareholders.

The effectiveness of the CMS relies on the commitment and the support of both management and employees.

The Compliance Management System of OTE Group is based on the international standards ISO 37001:2016 “Anti-Bribery Management Systems” and ISO 19600:2014 “Compliance Management Systems”.

Key elements of the CMS

• The prevention of misconduct in parallel with compliance with the policies provided for by the CMS. In this way, both the Group and its employees are protected from any legal consequences due to misconduct, while the reputational risks of the Group are reduced. Prevention is achieved mainly through:

√ The employees’ training about the dangers involved by any breach of basic rules, such as those of corruption, fraud, misuse of personal data, manipulation of financial statements, leakage of confidential business information, etc.

√ The channels that have been developed for the communication with employees, so that the latter can submit questions regarding the implementation of the Code of Conduct and the Policies, in case they are uncertain as to how they should handle issues that come up in their daily work.

• The detection of compliance violations and the response to them. In order to provide the possibility of reporting any violations of Policies, regulations and of the legislation in force, the Company has established the relevant communication channels .

CMS Operation

Τhe Business Unit of Executive Director Compliance, Enterprise Risk Management & Insurance OTE Group, which is responsible for the design and implementation of the CMS, reports directly to the Company's Board of Directors. For the implementation of the CMS at the OTE Group, Compliance Officers have been designated at the Group subsidiary companies, including our Company. Moreover, the OTE Group Compliance, Enterprise Risks & Corporate Governance Committee has been established. The main purpose of the Committee is to support and monitor the implementation of the Compliance Management (CMS), Risk Management (RMS) and Corporate Governance Systems.

Management of Human Rights issues

Furthermore, OTE has designated on a corporate level, the Executive Director Compliance, ERM and Insurance OTE Group, as the responsible Officer for managing Human Rights issues, to whom, together with the designated persons in the Group companies, internal and external inquiries as well as any relevant tip offs are addressed.
