Anti-Bribery program

ASSA ABLOY does not tolerate, and works actively to prevent, corruption in its business. To further emphasize this the Group has implemented specific compliance programs within the areas of Anti-Bribery, antitrust and export control, which supplement and expand on the Code of Conduct in respect of these areas.

Risk assessments, employee training, third-party compliance and reporting are essential components of the Anti-Bribery compliance program. Implementation of the program is an ongoing process; the Group provides supporting tools, while each division is responsible for the implementation.
