Anti-competitive behaviour

It is Elkem’s general policy to compete vigorously and fairly in full compliance with relevant laws and regulations applicable to its business. To ensure group-wide compliance, Elkem has adopted a competition law policy and manual that describes conduct that will or may infringe on competition law.

Absolute compliance with competition law is expected of all Elkem business units, its employees and representatives. Any failure to comply with competition law will be considered as a serious breach of the employee’s obligations towards Elkem. Elkem personnel considered as exposed to competition law issues are required to sign the competition law policy and manual and participate in competition law training facilitated by Elkem. Business unit leaders have the responsibility to take steps to implement Elkem’s policy in their respective organisations.
