KMD’s Corporate Compliance program focuses on the following seven areas: Anti-corruption, IT-security, Competition law, Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), Contractual risk management, Chart of Authority and Document management and storage.

All new employees are introduced to KMD's Corporate Compliance program through compulsory E-learning. Corporate Compliance sub-sites are available on KMD's intranet to provide guidance and specific policies within the seven focus areas.

KMD's Corporate Compliance program, including a Code of Conduct, sets policies in relation to KMD's seven focus areas:

  • Anti-corruption: We have zero tolerance towards corruption, bribery and facilitation payments
  • Information security: We manage information and data responsibly
  • Competition law: We act in accordance with competition law
  • IP-rights: We protect KMD's intellectual property rights
  • Contractual risk management: We conclude agreements based on KMD's policies
  • Chart of Authority: We respect the boundaries of our authority
  • Document management and storage: We adhere to KMD's procedures for document management

To support and strengthen the effectiveness of KMD's Corporate Compliance program KMD operates a whistleblower arrangement open to submissions from both internal and external stakeholders. Employees, management, the Board of Directors and external stakeholders can report any non-compliance with KMD's Corporate Compliance program, including Code of Conduct, applicable law and internal policies.

KMD continuously updates and develops its IT-security policies and programs supporting KMD's objectives in secure and correct data management. KMD is certified according to the ISO 27001:2013 Safety standard, the ISO 9001 Quality standard, ISO 20000 IT-service management standard, and ISO 14001 Environmental standard.

We have zero tolerance towards corruption, bribery and facilitation payments.
