Ethical channel

IGEMA has implemented a Corporate Compliance system, the objective of which is to design and implement internal measures and corporate procedures aimed at ensuring that IGEMA, its executives, and employees are aware of and comply with the regulatory framework applicable to them.

Furthermore, with the intention of promoting a responsible and transparent environment, IGEMA has established this Ethics Channel, through which any person can report potential breaches of the law, the Ethical Code or other internal IGEMA regulations, as well as raise any questions about IGEMA’s internal regulations.

With your collaboration, we can improve the functioning of our University Studies Center in relation to ethics and integrity.

Through the Ethics Channel, you can report or raise concerns about actions that are contrary to the law, the Ethical Codeor other internal IGEMA regulations that you may have become aware of. This includes any information related to potential violations that should be properly investigated and, if necessary, addressed with appropriate measures.

Additionally, you can also use this channel to seek clarification or raise questions about IGEMA’s internal regulations or policies.

Anyone, both internal and external to IGEMA, can make a report or raise concerns through the Ethics Channel . This includes all members of IGEMA and individuals with whom the organization has business relationships.

Therefore, this Ethical Channel is accessible to any person, internal or external to IGEMA.
