MAN has enacted a policy that regulates the commissioning of agents, representatives, consultants, or other business partners who act in a sales support capacity. Specific rules for reviewing business partners, drafting contracts, documenting the business relationship, and paying the remuneration are intended to counter the risk of the remuneration paid by MAN to business partners being used as corruption funds.
The integrity of all MAN business partners is checked by means of the Business Partner Approval Tool, the use of which the policy makes binding. The Business Partner Approval Tool is a web-based application that enables the integrity of a business partner to be reviewed quickly, transparently, and thoroughly. The Business Partner Approval Tool was developed in 2010 together with sales employees and is used throughout the Group.
