Compliance describes all measures taken to ensure the correct conduct of companies, their management and staff with respect to statutory obligations and prohibitions. The Lufthansa Compliance Programme is intended to prevent our staff from coming into conflict with the law and at the same time to help them to apply statutory regulations correctly. The Lufthansa Compliance Programme is made up of the following elements: Competition, Capital Markets, Integrity and Corporate Compliance. An ombudsmen system gives staff the opportunity to report any suspicion of criminal activity or breaches of the compliance regulations. The central Compliance Office and the Compliance Officers in Group companies ensure that the compliance programme is enforced throughout the Group. The Audit Committee is informed regularly by means of Compliance Reports.
