行為準則

In a rapidly changing and highly competitive world, it is vital to stay focused on what really matters to us at BASF. Our values – creative, open, responsible, and entrepreneurial – help us do this. They remind us of what BASF stands for and serve as a yardstick for how we do business.

We are strictly committed to high standards of legal compliance and business ethics. Our Code of Conduct defines the boundaries within which we as BASF employees must act to comply with laws and internal policies. By doing so, it protects BASF and each of us.

Our Code of Conduct guides us to put our values and commitments into practice – throughout the company, and in everything we do. It helps us navigate through areas and situations where responsible conduct and ethical decision-making are critically important. Only when we fully comply with our Code of Conduct, and all laws and regulations, we can achieve our aspiration to be the world’s leading chemical company, respected and trusted by our customers, investors, employees and all other stakeholders.

Our Code of Conduct cannot cover in detail the wide variety of situations we may encounter. Each of us is responsible for ensuring we understand BASF’s policies and procedures, and for maintaining the high ethical standards in every aspect of our work – even when our Code of Conduct provides no direct guidance. We are always expected to show both integrity and common sense. When in doubt, we always speak up and ask for help.

Anti-corruption, trade control and anti-money laundering

trade_control.jpg

We do business with integrity. Always, without exception.

At BASF our reputation for doing business with complete integrity is critical. We are committed to fighting any kind of corruption or bribery. We play to win, but strictly within the rules, treating all business partners fairly and competing for business based on the quality of our products and services. Naturally, we expect the same from those we do business with.   

Anti-corruption

We do not get involved in corruption – whatever form it takes. We do not offer or accept bribes and we do everything we can to prevent bribery by others who act on our behalf, for example, by appropriately checking third parties with whom we do business or who provide services.

Furthermore, “facilitation” or “grease” payments (i.e., small cash or non-cash benefits to office holders to facilitate administrative procedures or official acts, e.g., customs clearances, to which the company or the individual is entitled) are not allowed. If, however, the refusal to make facilitation payments would put your personal safety at risk, you may make such a payment but must inform your manager thereafter.

Always vigilant against corruption

Corruption can take many forms, so we are always vigilant and on the alert for any suspicious behavior, such as a business partner asking for unusually high commissions or payments in cash or refusing to accept anti-corruption contract requirements or our Supplier Code of Conduct. 

We would rather lose a business opportunity than win by means of corruption. Bribery – whether of a governmental official or in the private sector – is always wrong and has no place in our business. 

Political activity and lobbying

We conduct our lobbying and political communications in accordance with transparent guidelines, our publicly stated positions and all applicable laws. As a company, we engage in political lobbying to advance our company’s interests, but we do this transparently and do not financially support political parties or organizations close to them.

We do business across borders. But always within legal boundaries.

We are a global company with activities and business partners all over the world. We are aware that all business relationships with domestic and international partners may be subject to trade control laws. Overall, our goal is to prevent our products from falling into the wrong hands, where there is a risk of them being misused. So, we strictly adhere to all applicable laws, including trade control regulations like embargoes, anti-terrorism laws and further regulations aimed at preventing misuse.

Trade control

We do business globally which means our activities are subject to various national and international trade laws, restricting or prohibiting the import and export of our products or services. These restrictions can be based not only on the nature of the product, but sometimes also on the country of origin or destination, or even on the identity of the customer.  

Export controls can take many forms. Besides restrictions on physical goods, software and services may also be controlled. Export controls can even apply to technology transfer, for instance the exchange of information relevant to the trade control law shared via electronic means like email or an online collaboration site or transported across borders on electronic devices. 

Trade control regulations are a sensitive topic, but our Global Trade Control Team helps us navigate within these boundaries, because employees need to be familiar with, and sensitive to, the issues of export/import controls. Take advantage of their expert knowledge if you have any questions relating to trade control regulations. 

We are always on guard against dirty money.

At BASF, we do not allow dirty money to play any part in our business. But while it is easy to state that as a fundamental principle, protecting our company against attempts by criminals to "clean" cash and other assets generated by illegal activities is a challenge that demands constant vigilance, from us all. Because being involved in money-laundering or terrorism financing – even inadvertently – is a criminal offence. 

Anti-money laundering

We are always keen to do business, but only with reputable partners who operate within the law, using resources from legitimate sources. We carefully check the identity and credentials of potential customers, business partners and other third parties. And we take all reasonable measures to ensure transparent business relationships.

Money laundering is a deliberate attempt to move cash or assets derived from criminal activities into legal and legitimate financial activities. At BASF, we take all reasonable measures to prevent our company being used as a means to launder money. 

To protect our reputation and avoid any possible criminal liability, we need to be constantly vigilant about the activities of business partners, so we know who we are dealing with before contracts are signed, or transactions occur, and watch out for payment irregularities or suspicious behavior, on the part of customers or others.

Antitrust law, gifts and entertainment, conflict of interests

673645029

We compete to win. But always fairly. 

At BASF, our aspiration is to be the world’s leading chemical company. To achieve this, we always act fairly as we know there are no short-cuts. For us, the only kind of success worth having depends on winning, and maintaining, the long-term trust of our customers and business partners.   

Antitrust law

We are committed to conducting our business solely on the basis of free and fair competition, and we strictly obey all applicable laws and regulations. We believe that fair, well-regulated competition strengthens our market and benefits our customers. 

As a market leader in various fields, BASF has special obligations under antitrust law for conducting our business in a way that promotes fair competition. We welcome this extra responsibility, and aim to lead by example, to achieve the best for our customers. 

We are aware that any violation of antitrust laws can result in heavy fines, and even imprisonment, for the company, management and individuals concerned. In the EU, for example, fines for antitrust violations could amount to up to 10% of BASF's total global sales. It is up to all of us to be alert for any situation that could potentially be seen as harmful to free and fair competition. 

For agreements between competitors (companies on the same level of the supply chain – also called horizontal agreements), the strict regulations of European antitrust law must be complied with worldwide, irrespective of local laws that may be less strict or non-existent. This also applies to “concerted practices” between competitors, which may be triggered even by a one-sided sharing or receiving of information.

We build great relationships. But not through gifts.

We are all in favor of doing business in a way that builds great relationships. But gifts and entertainment need to be regarded with real caution. And when there is any doubt, we ask questions, we talk to each other, we act with caution and make our actions transparent.

Gifts and entertainment

We do not consider it appropriate to accept or grant a personal benefit of any kind in connection with our professional activities. But in the course of good business relationships, a small gift or modest invitation may sometimes be offered based on what is considered reasonable and customary. In such situations, we need to exercise caution and common sense, to avoid any possible misinterpretation of motives and reputational damage. Invitations may be okay with regard to our internal rules but may have a bad taste due to the situation and other circumstances.

We think carefully and only offer or accept gifts which have a moderate value and are understood to be simply business courtesies, and not an attempt to induce us to act unprofessionally, or to misuse our position. We also pay attention to the image that can be created due to the external circumstances and the overall situation. We use the same standard when deciding whether to offer or accept a gift. We do not offer or accept cash or cash equivalents such as gift cards or shopping vouchers.

We are particularly cautious when dealing with public officials or government representatives because we adhere to the often very strict rules that govern this in many countries.

We take care of business. Not our own personal interests.

It may sound obvious that when we are at work, all our actions and decisions should be based on what's best for the business. But conflicts of interest - situations where personal gain may influence our professional judgment - can and do arise. It is vitally important that we know how to recognize potential conflicts of this kind, and that we disclose them before any damage is done to the trust our company's success is built upon. 

Conflicts of interest

We are well aware that our personal relationships and interests should never affect our business activities or influence our decision-making, in any way. We need to be careful to avoid situations where a conflict between private and professional may arise – or, just as important, where it may appear to do so. 

This means, for example, that we should not make any investment, or enter into any relationship, that may cause others to doubt our fairness, integrity or ability to perform our duties fairly objectively. 

It is important to make the point that having a conflict of interest is not, in itself, misconduct – but the way we handle it could be. It is all about transparency; if we suspect a possible conflict, we need to raise it with our manager, without delay. 

Human rights, labor and social standards

Environmental protection, health and safety

health_safety.jpg

We treat people fairly and with respect.

We treat people with fairness, consideration and respect. Our aim is to ensure that each individual feels valued, and fully supported in achieving their personal best. Always, and without exception.

Human rights, labor and social standards

We value people and respect human rights. As a company aiming for profitable growth, we have made the decision to pursue sustainable value creation, which means striving to positively contribute to the protection and promotion of human rights and people's well-being. 

We commit to internationally agreed-upon standards, such as the United Nations’ Universal Declaration on Human Rights, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the Tripartite Declaration of Principles Concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy (MNE Declaration) of the International Labor Organization (ILO).

In our own business activities, we avoid causing or contributing to adverse human rights impacts. As a participant in numerous global value chains, we are dependent on partners and demand that they likewise respect human rights and the associated international labor and social standards (ILSS). We offer to help our partners in their efforts to meet their human rights responsibilities.  

Respect in the workplace

Everyone at BASF should always feel valued and respected. So, we expect every one of us avoid saying or doing anything that is humiliating, condescending, offensive or otherwise disrespectful to our colleagues. This is fundamental for our motivation and dedication at work.

We built our team on talent and appreciate the differences in our team because they make us stronger and are essential to our success. We promote an inclusive environment that embraces diversity of all kinds, including a wide variety of backgrounds, thoughts, perspectives, demographics, ethnicities, and origin.   

We do not tolerate discrimination or harassment against anyone based on grounds such as age, race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, national origin, religion, disability, genetic information, or any other personality traits or preferences. This governs all our employment decisions such as recruiting, hiring, promotions, benefits, disciplinary actions or terminations. 

We value the health and safety of people above all else.

Wherever we do business, we act responsibly – not just complying with all relevant regulations but going the extra mile to reduce risks and minimize our environmental impact. 

Environmental protection, health and safety

We are committed to energy efficiency and climate protection, and are constantly working to develop sustainable solutions for our business operations and for our customers. Across all our operations and in close collaboration with our suppliers, we work to achieve the highest standards of health and safety, and to maintain the trust of our employees, customers, business partners and other stakeholders. In the event of any kind of incident or emergency, we are well prepared to take whatever action is necessary. 

We support, among others, the UN Sustainable Development Goals Climate Action (SDG 13), Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12) and Zero Hunger (SDG 2). And to this end, we work continuously to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from our business activities and reduce emissions to water from our production processes. 

We aim to use products and resources in the best way possible across the entire value chain and act responsibly when we operate our plants and when our goods are transported around the world. 

A business that demands we take extra care

In terms of environmental protection, health and safety, we are aware that the nature of our business demands that we take exceptionally good care to reduce risks and prevent accidents. The protection of people and the environment is our top priority. Our core business – the development, production, processing and transportation of chemicals – demands a responsible approach. We systematically address risks with a comprehensive Responsible Care Management System. We expect our employees and contractors to know the risks of working with our products, substances and plants and handle these responsibly.

We review the safety of our products from research and development through production and all the way to our customers’ application. We continuously work to ensure that our products pose no risk to people or the environment when they are used responsibly and in the intended manner.

A commitment shared with our partners and suppliers

We do not just set ourselves ambitious goals for safety and security, health and environmental protection; we expect our business partners to aim equally high. In particular, we count on our suppliers to be fully engaged with these goals, and work with them to improve their sustainability performance. 

Sensitive company information, personal data, digital responsibility, accurate books and records

datasecurity.jpg

We protect the information our success is built upon.

Sharing information within BASF and with our partners enables us to create value for the company and our customers, and to benefit from the wealth of knowledge of our employees. To protect our know-how, we take every reasonable measure to prevent unauthorized disclosure or misuse, across all our business activities and every form of communication.

Information Protection and Cyber Security

We build on our intellectual property because confidential information and intellectual property of many kinds – from individual expertise to internationally protected patents – are some of our most valuable assets. So, we take the greatest care to protect them and equally, of course, we respect the intellectual property of others. 

We comply with all applicable policies, requirements and guidelines on Information Protection and Cyber Security, and regulate consequently the sharing of confidential information. We do not share confidential information on social media or in public places. 

Insider trading

Using price sensitive non-public information when trading shares could be gravely damaging to the integrity of the markets.

When we have access to inside information, we do not use it to trade in, or recommend trading in, financial instruments and we never disclose such information. Trading in shares or other financial instruments while being in possession of relevant inside information is strictly prohibited. We always handle sensitive company information responsibly.

In our working lives at BASF, we may well have access to non-public information about BASF, or the affairs of a third party, which could have an impact on the value or price of publicly traded securities, in particular BASF shares. Insider trading laws prohibit making use of such inside information in securities trading or disclosing it to third parties, including friends or family. And anyone violating these laws may face severe criminal penalties and financial liability. 

We take care to protect personal data.

In our everyday business activities, we collect and handle a lot of personal data relating to individuals, such as employees, customers and business partners. We never forget this data is private and must be treated with respect – not just because laws strictly demand it, but also because it is the right thing for a responsible business to do. 

Personal data

We are committed to respect the personal rights of everyone. We adhere to strict standards when we handle personal data. All personal data collected by us will be processed fairly, transparently, carefully and in full compliance with the applicable legal requirements. It is part of doing business with integrity to always treat personal data confidentially. We protect personal data from unauthorized access or loss. 

We leverage digitalization across the company.

It is no exaggeration to say that digital technology is changing almost every aspect of our lives. And, of course, for companies like ours, that poses some challenges, as traditional business models and norms are disrupted. But we are excited by the amazing opportunities offered by digitalization to create additional value for our customers, improve the efficiency of our processes, and strengthen our capacity for innovation.  

Digitalization

We are an innovation-driven company and create chemistry for a sustainable future. To ensure our long-term success and support the success of our customers, we make use of the chances of digitalization. We thoughtfully and efficiently integrate its benefits into the way we do business and leverage its potentials for our business conduct as well as for our products and customer solutions.

A transformation driven by our values  

Digitalization is crucial to staying competitive and is therefore one of our strategic action areas. To stay ahead of the competition, we need to accelerate the execution of digital projects and build strong digital capabilities throughout the company. Technologies like augmented reality, machine learning, cloud computing, AI, or others are often used to create exciting customer experiences, new digital business models or make processes more efficient.

We also recognize the significant impact of digitalization on our employees, our customers, and wider society and are committed to steering this transformation responsibly and ethically, for the benefit of all stakeholders, by:

  • ensuring that developments and usage are driven by our values and the principles laid down in our Code of Conduct, our guidelines and policies. 
  • developing digital solutions in a collaborative, multidisciplinary, and diverse way – and using them inclusively, to empower our employees, customers and other stakeholders.
  • seeking to avoid or reinforce unfair bias.
  • communicating openly information on technical abilities and intended usage of digital solutions and providing means for oversight and control by customers and other users.
  • safeguarding data protection and privacy as core principles in all digital solutions, as reflected in our Code of Conduct.
  • upholding quality and safety standards, as we do with all our products. 
  • acknowledging that many challenges will require broader discussions across industries, disciplines and borders, and being an active voice in this debate. 

We take care to handle company assets responsibly.

From stationery and office furniture to computers and cars, there are many kinds of company property that enable us all to do our jobs to the best of our ability. Naturally, we treat all such assets responsibly, protecting them against loss, damage, theft or misuse. And of course, exactly the same applies when we handle property belonging to any of our customers, business partners or other third parties.

Company property

We regard it as fundamental to our values that all of us in BASF should handle company property with due care and respect. And not just physical assets; it is equally important to be responsible in the way we deal with intangible assets, such as intellectual property rights, copyrighted material, financial records, and also our brand reputation. 

We build trust with reliability and transparency.

For our company to be regarded as trustworthy by all our stakeholders, the accuracy and integrity of our books and financial and nonfinancial records must be beyond question. In addition, of course, any irregularities in accounting or reporting can have serious consequences, for the company and the individuals responsible. Our internal control systems are essential to ensure that the numbers and records always comply with the relevant legal requirements. 

Accurate books and records

We are convinced that keeping accurate records which give a fair, transparent and complete picture of our business is a critically important responsibility that lies in all our hands. We expect the same standards of honesty and integrity to apply across all business records, from research results to expense claims.  

We strictly comply with all statutory requirements for proper accounting and financial reporting as well as tax laws and regulations. We further place the highest importance on creating records that reflect the true nature of the transactions and activities they document. 

巴斯夫合規計劃

關於《行為準則》

本《行為準則》對巴斯夫集團全球所有員工具有约束力。

BASF Branding A4X

巴斯夫合規熱線(2020年1月)

巴斯夫致力確保全體員工的行為與國際普遍接受的人權標準以及核心的勞工和社會標準保持一致。

這些標準包括:《世界人權宣言》、《經濟合作與發展組織跨國企業準則》和國際勞工組織《關於跨國公司和社會政策的三方原則聲明》。

巴斯夫對於廢除各種形式的童工與強制勞動不遺餘力地,並高度重視無歧視原則,認可自由結社、集體談判和社會夥伴關係,承諾按當地市場條件提供公平薪酬與福利、適當工時和帶薪休假,並保持適度的紀律處罰與安全保護措施。

巴斯夫全力支持公平就業機會,並嚴格遵守所有適用法律,特別是禁止年齡、種族、膚色、性別、性取向、出生國籍、宗教或殘疾方面的就業歧視。本政策適用於所有聘用決策,包括招募、雇用、培訓、輪調、晉升、薪酬、福利、紀律處罰和終止合約等。巴斯夫還嚴禁性騷擾和其它工作場所騷擾。巴斯夫推動多元化、包容性的工作場所。

在巴斯夫,我們致力引領可持續發展解決方案並積極承擔經濟、生態與社會責任。

我們在安全問題上從不妥協。經濟方面的考量不會淩駕於安全、健康與環境保護之上。

遵守所有法律法規以保護人類與環境是公司的基本宗旨之一。這點同樣展現在我們的產品和製程上。

每位員工在其工作範圍內都應承擔起保護自然資源和環境的責任。同樣,人類的健康與安全也是巴斯夫關注的重中之重。基於「責任關懷」原則,我們以負責任的態度保護員工、鄰居及業務夥伴的健康。每位員工均應時刻對安全工作負責,並遵守所有適用的環境、職業健康與安全方面的法律法規以及公司內部政策與規定。所有主管都有責任指導、監督和支持其團隊履行這一職責。在沒有相關環境保護和職業健康與安全的法規或公司政策及規定的領域,員工必須依照常識做出決定,並在必要時徵求主管的意見。  

我們的政策是促進公平競爭。因此,我們要求全體員工嚴格遵守所有適用的反托拉斯法。

違法行為將受到嚴厲制裁和罰款,並可能導致相關協議失效。

 

競爭者間的協議

競爭者之間以避免或限制競爭為目的或具有此等效果的協議和聯合行為(橫向協議)應予以禁止。

這其中包括諸如在價格、串通競標、客戶分配、銷售或採購條款、生產或銷售配額,或劃分區域市場方面的協議。

除了此類明確契約協調的協議,通過一系列單方面聲明(例如,意圖引發競爭對手相同反應的漲價聲明)造成的聯合行為,同樣受到禁止。

競爭對手(包括非獨家經銷商) 之間進行任何直接或間接的資訊交流,如客戶、定價、成本、薪酬、銷售條款、經銷方式、市佔率、產量、競標或策略(如商業和研究策略)方面的資訊,同樣也受到禁止。

在與競爭對手接觸的過程中,必須確保不得接受也不得提供任何可以使人了解資訊提供者現在或未來市場活動的資訊。

在橫向協議中,無論當地是否存在反托拉斯法或當地法律是否更加寬鬆,巴斯夫在全球範圍內都必須嚴格遵守歐洲反托拉斯法的規定。

 

縱向協議

許多類型的縱向協定(即供應商和客戶、或專利持有人和專利被許可人之間的約定和協議)在歐盟、美國和其他國家同樣受到禁止,並可能導致罰款或個別協議失效。

這其中包括:對客戶自主設定價格進行限制,在供應條件上對客戶(選擇)業務合作夥伴進行限制(區域、客戶或應用限制),某些最優惠客戶待遇條款,獨佔性安排,例如獨家採購或獨家供應及不競爭。

在很多情況下,此類限制性安排的合法性和有效性取決於其持續時間的長短、強度的高低,以及所涉及各方的市場地位。

此外,此類縱向限制條款的合法性在不同地區存在差異。因此,與橫向協議限制不同,此時應以當地法律為準,必須進行確認。

 

濫用市場支配地位

巴斯夫在很多產品領域中有市場支配地位,所以在許多情況下需遵循特定規則。原則上,儘管地區之間存在稍許差別,但濫用市場支配地位在歐盟、美國、中國和其他國家均受到禁止,可能導致罰款或個別協議失效。濫用的表現形式如:無正當理由差別對待客戶(禁止歧視)、拒絕供應、選擇性供應、強加不適當的購買/銷售價格和條件,或無正當理由搭售額外的服務。

應公平對待所有業務夥伴,特別是供應商、客戶、合資企業合作方、承包商和經銷商。

巴斯夫也期待得到業務夥伴同樣的對待。我們與業務夥伴之間的關係應完全建立在客觀標準之上,特別是品質、信賴、具有競爭力的價格、符合環保、社會和公司治理標準。全球大多數國家的反賄賂法律均禁止賄賂國內外政府官員、國內外私營企業員工及其代表。

巴斯夫始終致力嚴厲打擊各種貪腐行為。因此,巴斯夫禁止員工、代理商和其它協力廠商以巴斯夫的名義進行任何形式的賄賂行為。上述人員在與業務夥伴或政府官員打交道時,不得索取或接受任何可能被解釋為企圖影響或誘導業務決策的有價回報(如現金、禮品、招待或其它任何個人利益)。同樣,也不得向其它公司的員工或政府官員承諾或給予任何個人利益,以獲取或維持業務,或為巴斯夫或個人謀取任何不當利益。

我們要求全體員工在業務夥伴或政府官員提供或索取任何個人利益時向其主管報告。

此外,也不允許所謂的「疏通費」”或「通融費」(即:以公司或個人名義向政府官員提供小額現金或非現金利益,以加快行政流程或官方行為)。但是,如果拒絕支付疏通費會給您的人身安全造成危險,您可以支付相關費用但必須在事後呈報主管。

如今,在處理商務禮品和邀請上已有更多限制,我們對此趨勢表示大力支持。

因此,巴斯夫員工僅可接受或提供出於商務禮節的禮品、商務餐或招待活動,此類招待必須符合通行商業慣例,並從一開始便杜絕影響業務決策和官方判決的可能。上述規定同樣適用於專業性的商務活動或會議中提供或接受禮品、餐飲或招待。

如無法禮貌拒絕不適當的禮品,應先收下,在此情況下,應通知主管,以決定進一步處理的方法(如捐贈給慈善機構)。

禁止提供、給予、索取或接受現金或現金等價物。

在大多數國家,達到一定數量/金額的禮品和招待被視為應稅收入。因此必須確保嚴格遵守相關稅法。如有任何疑問,請向您的主管或財務諮詢。

您所在的國家或部門(如採購部)可在充分考慮上述原則的基礎上制訂專門的禮品政策。如存有疑問,請向合規專員或法務部諮詢。

您的行為應符合公司的最佳利益、避免利益衝突並維護公司聲譽。個人關係或利益不得影響商業活動。

換言之,您的個人利益不得與巴斯夫的利益構成或可能構成衝突,亦不得影響或可能影響您在履行工作職責時的判斷。例如,您應當回避使他人對您在客觀地履行職責時的公正、誠信或能力產生懷疑的任何投資、利益、關係或活動。

任何員工均必須向其主管報告現有或潛在的利益衝突,並與其主管共同尋求解決方案以避免或儘量減少利益衝突。

任何關於巴斯夫的非公開信息一旦洩露,就可能造成公司的損失,或給予他人不公平的業務機會或個人優勢,那麼此類資訊則視為公司的機密資產。

發明、專利和專業知識對於巴斯夫的長期成功至為重要。必須嚴格保護機密資訊,並防止協力廠商未經授權接觸該類資訊。此外,嚴禁利用掌握的機密資訊為自己或協力廠商謀取私利。上述規定同樣適用於協力廠商揭露給您的保密資訊。

您必須遵守相關的政策和指南,如資訊保護指南和巴斯夫內網使用指南。如您無法確定是否構成專有資訊,應向您的主管、資訊保護專員或法務部諮詢。

作為員工,您可能能夠訪問巴斯夫及協力廠商非公開的重要資訊。此類資訊一旦發生洩露,就可能影響到公開交易的證券價值,特別是巴斯夫的股價。反內幕交易法禁止私自使用此類資訊及/或將其洩露給協力廠商,包括朋友或家人。舉例來說,此類資訊包括:出售公司重要業務的計畫、收購或並購業務、未公開的利潤資料,尤其是有良好前景的研究成果方面的資訊。

違反相關的反內幕交易法可能導致個人民事或刑事責任。

巴斯夫承諾尊重員工及業務夥伴的隱私和誠信。我們在處理員工個人資訊及業務夥伴資料時堅持採用最嚴格的標準。

巴斯夫採集並保存的所有個人資料均應按照當地適用的個資保護法,公平、透明、謹慎地處理。

只有獲得授權的巴斯夫員工及代理商方可根據業務需要存取人事檔案。除依法要求,巴斯夫嚴禁在未獲得授權的情況下將員工保密資訊向公司外的任何人揭露。

如存有疑問,請向資料保護專員或法務部諮詢

很多國家的法律以及一些國際貿易法限制或禁止巴斯夫部分產品或服務的進出口。

此類限制不僅是出於產品性質的考慮,也包括原產國、目的地國甚至客戶身份(禁運)。技術和軟體出口也存在類似的限制。某些國家可能正面臨貿易禁運。在實施禁運的國家或地區,任何個人或公司都不得參與或協助對被禁運國及其國民或居民的商品或服務進出口。

此外,對我們公司而言,《化學武器公約》及其它關於販賣和交易麻醉品、精神類藥物或成癮性藥物的法律和國際公約的規定尤為重要。因此,任何員工均不得購買、生產或銷售違反上述規定的化學品或其它物品。如無相關政府部門明確許可以及巴斯夫對某些產品要求的最終目的地國自願聲明,不得出口或出售屬於法律管控或巴斯夫®自願監控範圍的物品或技術。此外,部分產品必須按照法律要求妥善且嚴密保管。

員工必須以負責任的態度保管和處理公司資產,避免出現遺失、損壞、失竊、濫用或未經授權的使用。

公司資產也包括專有知識、智慧財產權和版權資料等無形資產。公司電腦和其它設備僅供工作之用,不可挪作私用。同樣,只可安裝獲得合法授權的軟體。

未經相關部門明確許可,不得將公司資產用於私人目的或搬離公司所在地。

所有員工均應遵守公司資產保護的相關政策。

洗錢是指將從犯罪活動中獲取的財產(不限於現金)注入到正常經濟運作中。

洗錢在歐盟成員國、美國、中國和其它很多國家都屬於犯罪行為。任何員工不得獨自或者夥同協力廠商違反有關洗錢的法律規定。

如出現涉及現金或現金等價物轉移的可疑財務交易,必須由財務主管事先審查並核准。
