Establishment of Compliance
For the Anritsu Group to maintain its ethical corporate stance, everyone working in the Group must be deeply aware of corporate social responsibility, comply with relevant laws and regulations in all their corporate activities, and behave in a manner that conforms to the demands of society.
The Anritsu Group’s Sustainability Policy defines various compliance initiatives, including respecting human rights and operating as a business with justice and ethics. We have also established the Anritsu Group Charter of Corporate Behavior, laying out principles of corporate behavior shared by the Anritsu Group, and the Anritsu Group Code of Conduct, a set of guiding principles for all employees to apply the charter in their daily work.
In addition, we have established the Anritsu Group Anti-Bribery Policy to ensure fair business practices. These policies clearly state that we will not only comply with the Anti-Monopoly Act, import and export laws, and other applicable laws but also prohibit any discrimination and harassment that may lead to human rights violations, as well as any behavior that may lead to corruption, such as excessive entertainment or gifts to or from customers or suppliers, information leaks, insider trading, money laundering, and relationships with antisocial forces.
For suppliers, the Anritsu Group Basic Rules for Procurement stipulate such matters as legal and regulatory compliance, consideration for human rights and labor, and the ethical conduct of business activities.

Promotion of compliance at the Domestic Anritsu Group is led by the Group CEO, who takes the role as the chairman of the Management Strategy Conference. Under this conference, we have set up a Corporate Ethics Promotion Committee, chaired by the executive officer in charge of compliance and participated by employees of the Domestic Anritsu Group companies, which oversee activities related to compliance promotion.
The Corporate Ethics Promotion Committee discusses and conducts establishment of the basic policy on corporate ethics of the Group, revisions of the Code of Conduct, plans for intra-Company monitoring with a corporate ethics survey, conducts analysis, makes improvements, and plans for other promotional activities related to ethics and compliance. It also reports annually on the status of ethics and compliance across the Anritsu Group to the Board of the Directors.
The Corporate Ethics Promotion Committee and the Legal Department, which serves as secretariat to the former, work with committees dealing with legal matters to provide guidance and necessary support to Anritsu Group companies outside Japan in complying with the ethics and laws of the country or region in which they operate, giving due respect to the legal systems, cultures, and customs of those areas. The Legal Department also works with compliance officers at each overseas company in line with the goal of establishing a global compliance system.
The Internal Audit Department conducts an audit of the system to ensure that it is functioning appropriately and offers recommendations and requests for improvement as needed.
