Basic Policy on Compliance

The FUKOKU Group regards compliance with laws and regulations, etc. as one of the most important aspects of management and pursues activities to strengthen and raise awareness about such compliance.
By quickly detecting and assessing matters that have the potential to impede the continuation of business and compliance risks that could threaten the safety and security of stakeholders, and deliberating and implementing the necessary responses, the FUKOKU Group strives to prevent them from occurring and, in the event that they do occur, strives to minimize the damage and prevent their recurrence.
