Compliance management system
A compliance management system ensures compliance with all airport-related laws, specifications and regulations, national and international rules and standards, and in-house rules and guidelines. The Group-wide compliance management system encompasses all organizational provisions ensuring compliance with the aforementioned rules.
The Compliance department submits reports on the current status of the compliance management system to the Executive Board on a regular basis and to the Supervisory Board on an annual basis.
The position of anti-corruption officer is exercised by the head of the Compliance department. There were no confirmed cases of corruption in 2017.
Communication and training
A key task of the Compliance department is to train and advise employees and managers in compliance matters as a preventative measure to stop compliance breaches from occurring.
Group compliance regularly provides training and publishes information to ensure that all employees and managers are familiar with the guidelines and any updates or amendments to them. Every year they must provide their signature to confirm that they have read the compliance documentation.
In 2017, some 61 managers of the Munich Airport Group took part in the three-hour training module on compliance as part of the Leadership Excellence Program. In addition to the legal fundamentals and the responsibilities of managers, this also covers Munich Airport Group’s specific guidelines on compliance and the prevention of corruption.
The Executive Board and Supervisory Board deal with compliance issues at regular intervals.
Electronic whistle-blower system
Through an electronic whistle-blower system, the Business Keeper Monitoring System (BKMS®), Munich Airport employees, business partners, and customers can report behavior potentially damaging to our organization. People inside the Group and outside can also contact the Compliance department by other means of communication (telephone, e-mail, face-to-face discussions) if they wish to draw attention to compliance infringements and need advice. Tender documents inform potential bidders of the possibility of using the BKMS® should compliance infringements be suspected.
