Activities for Raising Compliance Awareness
In the Oji Group, the Corporate Compliance Department of Oji Holdings promotes compliance through activities including the provision of compliance training and the delivery of monthly newsletters, while the compliance promotion leaders of Group companies play the leading role in holding regular compliance meetings and providing compliance training. The Oji Group strives to raise compliance awareness by combining these activities.
Training programs provided by the Corporate Compliance Department include ones on specific topics, such as the Antimonopoly Act, the Subcontract Act, the prevention of bribery, and on-site training on harassment and other themes, which is provided by visiting each Group company. The department also issues the Compliance News every month, in which it introduces cases to promote awareness, explains the Oji Group Corporate Code of Conduct and the Oji Group Behavior Standard, and informs employees of the whistleblowing system.
Each Group company provides training on harassment and other issues on its own. In addition, regular compliance meetings are held to promote understanding of the Oji Group Corporate Code of Conduct and the Oji Group Behavior Standard and deepen communication between employees. These meetings lead employees to identify compliance-related problems in each workplace and discuss countermeasures against them, thereby raising compliance awareness on their own. The contents of the compliance meeting are reported to the Corporate Compliance Department, and effective initiatives are shared throughout the Group.

Monitoring of the Status of Compliance
The Corporate Compliance Department conducts compliance awareness surveys of all officers and employees of Group companies all over the world to monitor their compliance awareness and compliance-related problems of each workplace. (A survey for Group companies in Japan and one for overseas Group companies are conducted every other year.)
In addition, the Internal Audit Department audits the status of compliance on a regular basis.
Countermeasures are taken against the results of analyses of the awareness surveys and problems discovered through internal audits. The countermeasures are shared throughout the Group via the compliance promotion leaders of the respective Group companies. Through these and other measures, the results of the monitoring activities are utilized for future compliance promotion activities.
