What does Compliance mean?

Compliance means observing standards, laws and guidelines. As a neutral inspection agency accepted by all societal groups, TÜV Rheinland is well regarded and enjoys a high level of trust. Corruption or legally improper conduct would considerably damage the company.

Every individual in the company is responsible for ensuring that this does not happen. To meet the challenges of our daily work and to be able to offer assistance to every employee, we have developed a Compliance Program. The program identifies preventatively the risks of improper conduct, in particular corruption. Our declared goal is to be transparent inside and out.
