IRJ Group Compliance Hotline

We have established the IRJ Group Compliance Hotline as a whistle-blowing system for reporting an actual or a potential ethical (moral), legal, or regulatory violation, both at the organizational level and at the individual level.

This system is intended to prevent violations and unethical conduct. Furthermore, in the event of an actual legal or regulatory violation or unethical conduct, it enables the Group to act quickly and appropriately, with the expectation that this will have a self-purifying effect on the Group.

The IRJ Group Compliance Hotline is available not only to Group employees but to all workers, including temporary employees, part-time employees and other fixed-term employees, and contract employees, and to all related parties, including those who have transactions with the Group.

Compliance Hotline System

If Group employees, irrespective of their department, observe an actual or potential ethical (moral), legal, or regulatory violation (hereafter referred to as “compliance violation”) within the Company, normally they are required to use the standard chain of command to report the issue to a superior so that it can be dealt with. However, if they believe that the issue would not be addressed speedily and effectively through normal reporting channels, they can report the issue via the IRJ Group Compliance Hotline.
