Speak up!

Reporting regulatory violations confidentially, worldwide and around the clock

Integrity and compliant conduct are of the highest priority for MAN. In order to guarantee these values and to avoid or minimize potential risks due to regulatory violations, it is crucial that any regulatory violations are identified, clarified, and eliminated internally as early as possible.

At MAN, tip-offs regarding potential regulatory violations can be reported by employees, business partners, customers and other third parties through various channels, at any time, and in any language. All tip-offs are accepted and checked by the TRATON Investigation Office. Together with the MAN investigating unit (Corporate Audit) or another appropriate unit within the MAN Group, the TRATON Investigation Office ensures that comprehensive and appropriate investigations are carried out.

The whistleblower system guarantees the greatest possible protection for whistleblowers and persons implicated. An investigation is only initiated after very careful examination of the facts and reasonable suspicion of a regulatory violation. There will be strict confidentiality and secrecy throughout the investigative process. Information will be reviewed fairly, promptly and in a sensitive manner.
