Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

The Code summarises our ethical commitment. It offers guidelines and policies that define how we run our business.  It will help deliver consistently high standards of conduct throughout the Group, reinforcing our reputation around the world.  We expect our business partners, as well as our employees, to act with similarly high ethical standards.

The Code should help our employees and business partners identify and avoid situations that might breach legislation or neglect best practice. Understanding the relevant laws around the world is not always easy but this Code, encompassing Halma’s policies on Anti-Bribery and Corruption, Insider Dealing, Conflicts of Interest, Modern Slavery and Whistleblowing, covers the major areas. It cannot deal with every circumstance so if it does not give you enough guidance about how to deal with a particular situation, consult the Relevant Halma Executive.

Compliance with the Code is not only of concern to Halma, the business, but also to each employee. For example, bribery is illegal and will expose the business to prosecution, fines and loss of reputation. However, it could also expose employees personally to penalties including fines and, in extreme cases, even imprisonment.

If you are aware of any employee or operation involved in illegal acts or acting contrary to the Code, you must immediately report it to the Relevant Halma Executive. If you have any concern over how your complaint might be handled by the Relevant Halma Executive, please follow the Whistleblowing policy.

Compliance with the Code is required across the Group worldwide. We all share responsibility for ensuring that individually and collectively we are complying with this Code. I know that I can count on your support and will always do what I can to support you in doing the right thing.

Regards

Andrew Williams
Chief Executive
