Conflicts Of Interest
Employees shall not take business opportunities for themselves that belong to CriticaLog. Our employees must report to the management about any transaction or relationship that could reasonably be expected to give rise to a conflict of interest.
Our employees may not use company assets for unauthorised personal benefit. We do not tolerate fraud, theft, loss through recklessness or waste of company assets.
Gifts And Entertainment
Our employees must avoid improper personal benefits for themselves or family members that result from their association with CriticaLog. Employees may not accept gifts or entertainment that might appear to place them under obligation.
Our employees and agents may not pay or accept bribes to gain or render orders, services and other benefits. Our employees and agents must immediately turn down and report any attempt or opportunity for bribery.
In certain circumstances, small cash sums or small gifts may be appropriate if customary or necessary to expedite or secure the performance of routine governmental action and permitted under applicable laws of the relevant jurisdiction. However, such payments – referred to as facilitating payments – should be avoided whenever possible. Prior to making such payments, approval must be taken from the MD. All facilitating payments must be fairly and accurately recorded and accounted for.

CriticaLog Group Policy On Whistleblowing
We encourage CriticaLog employees to promptly report any breach or suspected breach of any law, regulation, the CriticaLog business principles or other company policies and procedures or any other alleged irregularities.

However, intentionally making a false whistle-blower report will lead to disciplinary action.
