Compliance with laws, rules and internal regulations is a top priority for us. We can only protect our company, our employees and our business partners if we act in accordance with the law and with integrity.

But wherever people work, mistakes can be made. In order to fulfil the legal requirements of the Whistleblower Protection Act and the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act and to be able to follow up on reports of violations or misconduct fairly and appropriately, we have introduced a whistleblower system.

Suspicious cases and complaints can be reported to the whistleblower system confidentially and, if desired, anonymously.

These include, for example, violations of antitrust and competition law, environmental regulations and human rights, as well as indications of corruption, theft, money laundering and other criminal offences.

In addition to employees, business partners, customers and other third parties can submit reports if they have specific information about breaches of regulations.

A report can be submitted in any language. If necessary, a translation will be arranged.

Particularly in the case of anonymous reports, please ensure that the information is formulated as specifically as possible and, if necessary, that documents are attached to support your suspicions.

It is also helpful if you are available to the reporting centre for further questions. Otherwise, the facts of the case cannot be discussed and you may not be informed of the progress of the proceedings.

In order to guarantee the maximum protection for whistleblowers and those affected, we have established an independent reporting office, the atarax group of companies. Trust is their business, here you are in good hands.


The following communication channels are available to ensure complete confidentiality:

  • Written notification by mail to:
    atarax Unternehmensgruppe, Luitpold-Maier-Str. 7, D-91074 Herzogenaurach
  • At the whistleblower’s request, a report can also be made in a confidential personal face-to-face meeting within a reasonable period of time.
  • Digital whistleblower system at
