Article 6 - The alert system


The alert system aims to consolidate the Ethics and Corporate Responsibility approach of the CIF Group and to guarantee all employees and third parties to the CIF Group a right of expression in order to work together towards better risk prevention.

This system presupposes strong individual responsibility; this system can only work if the information communicated has been provided in "good faith", without harmful intention.

The alert system enables CIF Group employees:

  • To provide employees and any third party with information and advice, in the event of misunderstanding, on the application or interpretation of the rules of the Code of Ethics;

  • to report facts relating to the crime or offense of a serious and manifest violation of an international engagement duly ratified or approved by France, of a unilateral act of an international organization taken on the basis of such an engagement, of the law or regulation, or a threat or serious prejudice to the general interest, of which she has personal knowledge, whatever the field.

The alert system guarantees confidentiality and respect for the rights of everyone in the processing of the procedures undertaken. The Ethics Committee is responsible for this system.

The whistleblower must, first of all, inform the ethics committee through the means made available to him via the company's website.

It is only in the absence of diligence by the committee receiving the alert within a reasonable time that the author of the alert may address the judicial authority, the administrative authority or the professional orders. As a last resort, in the absence of treatment by one of these authorities within three months, the alert may be made public.

Failing to comply strictly with this graduated procedure, the person making the alert will lose the whistleblower status and the protection attached to it.


Processing the alert


The alert will be received by the members of the Ethics Committee who will examine the file. Upon receipt of the alert, the Ethics Committee will be responsible for acknowledging receipt and registering with the whistleblower within a reasonable time.

If one of the members can be directly implicated by the alert issued, he will de facto be excluded from the investigation procedure.

The alert is carried out by its author in an identified manner, insofar as the procedure applied by the Ethics Committee for the collection of reports guarantees strict confidentiality of the identity of the author of the information, of the persons targeted by the alert and information gathered by the Committee.

The Committee is able to take all protective measures aimed at preventing immediate danger or at securing evidence.

Any alert which clearly falls outside the scope of the procedure, or whose seriousness is dismissed, which is in bad faith of its author or constitutes an abusive or slanderous denunciation, will be destroyed without delay. The Committee will inform its author and will decide the consequences of any alert which is launched in bad faith or with harmful intentions.

If the facts reported fall within the scope of the alert procedure, the employee or third party concerned will be informed as soon as the invitation to an investigation is registered. The Ethics Committee will ensure that the data collected is adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purposes for which it is collected.

From then on the Ethics Committee or its members will be able to check with the whistleblower its point of view on the reported facts.

Data relating to alerts will be destroyed, stored or archived in accordance with the provisions in force.

Thus, as soon as they are collected by the Ethics Committee, the data relating to an alert outside the framework of the procedure will be destroyed. Otherwise, the Ethics Committee is entitled to keep the data for the duration of the procedure and the follow-up given to the result of the investigation, in particular possible legal actions against the person or persons denounced.

Any whistleblower authorizes the Works Council to automatically process alerts and store data until the file and its consequences are closed.
