Group Compliance Structure
TIS established TIS INTEC Group Internal Control Committee to ensure appropriate compliance throughout TIS INTEC Group and to guide TIS INTEC Group in activities to further improve compliance practices.
In addition to internal helplines at each company under TIS INTEC Group umbrella, TIS maintains an open channel for use by TIS INTEC Group as a whole. TIS strives to prevent, detect, and correct misconduct as early as possible. The company is addressing various internal issues in an effort to strengthen compliance management.
TIS maintains a helpline available to all directors and employees, including contract staff and temporary staff, as well as retired employees in addition to employees at providers, such as businesses with contracts to supply products or services to TIS. This helpline (External helpline, Internal helpline) can be accessed by email or telephone and meetings can also be arranged get advice or report an issue in the event actions within the Company are thought to violate laws, internal rules or social standards or the potential for such misconduct becomes known.
Every effort is made to ensure the privacy of helpline users. In addition, no one who asks for advice or makes a report to the helpline shall suffer any disadvantage in a professional sense.

Preventing inappropriate behavior in the workplace helps to create and maintain a comfortable and productive work environment for everyone.
We will continue to find ways to make it easy to use the helplines as a safety net for those who have compliance-related concerns and find it hard to approach their supervisor for guidance.
In January 2020, TIS obtained whistleblower system certification under the Whistleblowing Compliance Management System (WCMS).
WCMS is a system through which Japanese companies evaluate their own whistleblowing programs and apply to have them registered. Each program undergoes a review by the designated registration organization—Japan Institute of Business Law—to determine if it meets certification standards. If the application is approved, the submitting company is registered and is granted the right to use the WCMS mark, which indicates that the business has in place an excellent management system to underpin compliance.
