CSG's Code of Conduct

Czechoslovak Group's Code of Conduct

One of the key components of the Czechoslovak Group's anti-corruption program is the Code of Ethics for the holding’s employees who are obliged to adhere to it. Some of its provisions also concern Czechoslovak Group’s partners, e.g. sales representatives and dealers. The Czechoslovak Group Code of Conduct is based on the requirements of the UK-based Transparency International. The Codex includes

  • the ban on corruption
  • the ban of conflicts of interest
  • reporting of corruptive of unethical behaviour
  • special duties of sales departments concerning fulfilling the anti-corruption program
  • rules of sponsorship and donations to political parties and movements
  • the commitment to spread the anti-corruption program beyond Czechoslovak Group
  • Sponsorship rules

    Sponsorship rules of CSG

    As a socially responsible holding operating in the arms industry, Czechoslovak Group's sponsorship activities are logically focused on supporting non-profit activities in the regions where its companies operate. These may be sports, cultural, educational or other activities. Activities in the field of education, which support the development of studies in technical fields that contribute significantly to the national wealth of the Czech Republic, strengthen its export potential and, at the same time, have long faced a shortage of quality students, have a special position among them.

    It is a rule of Czechoslovak Group sponsorship that it must not be purposely linked to the realisation of any business opportunity, whether in the public or private sector. Similarly, there must be no sponsorship that would in practice meet the definition of a conflict of interest. Czechoslovak Group generally discloses sponsorship activities in the form of a press release, information on its website, or in CSG's internal magazine.

    Support for political movements and parties

    CSG rules for supporting political movements and parties

    Support for political parties and movements must be transparent. Such support must not be linked to any public sector business opportunity. Czechoslovak Group strictly complies with all legal obligations regarding any support to political parties.

    Gifts and hospitality

    Gifts and hospitality

    The Czechoslovak Group provides its partners with standard services in the context of building acceptable professional relationships, including the possibility of covering accommodation costs during the partners' stay and providing gifts and gifts.

    However, the provision of unreasonably luxurious accommodation, unethical and costly hospitality and the provision of gifts of manifestly disproportionate value are prohibited. These actions are considered potentially corrupt in relation to Czechoslovak Group partners. Similarly, it is prohibited to accept such unreasonable services or luxury gifts to managers and employees of Czechoslovak Group member companies, especially in their sales departments. In the event that such offers are made by a partner, the employee is obliged to report this fact to his or her supervisor.

    Facilitation payments

    Facilitation payments

    At some foreign markets, the state employees are allowed to legally require facilitation payments. It is forbidden for Czechoslovak Group companies to provide these payments. The facilitation payments do not include business provisions for private sector partners, e.g. based on dealer agreements, licence agreements or sales representative contracts.

    Offset programs

    CSG involvement in offset programmes

    Although Czech legislation does not allow Czech companies to participate in offset programmes in public procurement by the Czech government and ministries in accordance with European law, they can be required to implement offset programmes when working in foreign environments. A typical requirement, even in democratic countries, can be a partial transfer of production, which can be perceived as a so-called direct offset. Czechoslovak Group, in cooperation with its foreign partners, implements offset programs in strict compliance with national legislation, usually to meet the customer's need to obtain the possibility of partial production and maintenance of the product. Czechoslovak Group rejects and does not participate in offset programs aimed at submitting orders that are not in line with its activities, contain corruption risk and could be used to commit corruption. Czechoslovak Group informs about activities that can be perceived as direct offsets by standard means when disclosing information about the original contract (production transfer is only possible for more significant and publicly auditable projects).
