Sandis Kolomenskis, Chairman of the board of Squalio Group

Our compliance is based on:

1

Code of ethics

Squalio Code of Ethics is designed to assist members and employees in understanding the difference between ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ and in applying that understanding to their decisions. The aim of the code is to ensure we do business based on highly ethical principles, provide a fair business environment and maintain our reputation as a valuable partner.

2

ISO Standard

ISO International Standards ensure that we offer products and services that are safe, reliable and of good quality. They are a strategic tool that reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors, and increasing productivity. They help us to access new markets, level the playing field for developing countries and facilitate free and fair global trade.

3

Annual audits

The internal financial audit and risk assessment is an ongoing annual process within the Squalio Group that is critical for ensuring the future success of the company, as well as maintaining our ability to be a reliable partner for our customers, partners and employees, and ensuring a transparent and fair business environment.

4

Vendor compliance

As responsible business partner to our vendors, it is not enough to want to do things right, we have to make that happen. That means making business decisions and taking appropriate actions that are ethical and in compliance with the applicable legal requirements. The Business Conduct procedure is carried out within the Squalio Group every year, and this regulates requirements and business practices that guide decision-making and business activities.

5

Legal affairs

Squalio Group’s compliance in legal matters is a particular part of our business culture. We aim to ensure so-called regulatory intelligence, effectively managing all activities across the entire Group, including policy and procedure management, incident management, document and contract management, surveys, compliance and legal forums, IT governance, ISO compliance, and enterprise risk management.
