Compliance & Ethics

Managing such a large international organization requires a set of internal corporate mechanisms through which ethical & compliance management can be implemented and compliance monitored. At Samsung Engineering, we are dedicated to ensuring fair treatment for all of our employees, partners, and clients.


Based off of Samsung Group's core values and business principles, Samsung Engineering's Code of Conduct lays out our commitment to ethical business practices and outlines the values and priorities expected of employees.

The Compliance Program is an organization-wide initiative used to guarantee self-governing legal compliance. This program, which is overseen by the CEO and a committee of senior executives, has created a support network of compliance officers with representatives in every department. These representatives are charged with dispensing advice on important policies, directing employees to the necessary legal resources, and reporting any infractions, violations, or complaints to the relevant governing committee for appropriate resolution. By ensuring all of our employees comply with governing laws, regulations, and policies the program mitigates risk and insulates the company and its employees from unanticipated legal fallout.

Introduction To Our Compliance Program


The Compliance Program offers specific guidelines for fair trade, anti-corruption and data security in order to ensure full compliance with Samsung Engineering's codes of conduct, ethical protocols, and corporate policies. By utilizing internal communication channels, Samsung Engineering is able to increase compliance awareness and provide employees with ongoing education and training regarding compliance management. To verify that these goals are being met, the Compliance Program operates an interdepartmental compliance monitoring system and regularly monitors individual offices and project sites.


Samsung Engineering utilizes an internal support portal known as the Engineering Compliance System (ECS), which functions as a means of communication between the compliance team and Samsung Engineering's personnel. Additionally, the ECS is an archive of compliance guidelines, legal references, and other compliance documents. Through this system, employees can seek legal advice and report legal violations witnessed in the workplace.


Since Samsung Engineering operates internationally and employs people with diverse backgrounds, fostering a transparent and ethical working environment requires clear policies on subjects such as anti-bid rigging and anti-corruption. By doing this, we are able to lay a solid foundation for an organization-wide culture of integrity.

Registration System on Contact with Competitors

In accordance with the anti-collusion guidelines, we prohibit our employees from making contact with competitors. However, if employees make contact with employees of competitors, they are required to report the details of the contact in advance and register the results on our system to prevent collusion or actions that may be construed as collusion.


Anti-corruption Training

Samsung Engineering prohibits our employees from offering and taking bribes regardless of the region where they operate business. Samsung Engineering obligates all employees in Korea and overseas to receive anti-corruption training every year. It introduces the trends and cases of corruption, the anti-corruption laws in many countries, and the guidelines on how to prevent corruption.

Compliance Awareness Self-Assessment

To evaluate and improve employee compliance, Samsung Engineering conducts self-assessment surveys every year. The results are then incorporated into the following year's compliance campaign and training programs.


Protection of Trade Secrets

Samsung Engineering obligates all employees to receive training for protection of trade secrets every year in order to protect trade secrets of Samsung Engineering and third parties. We also provide guidelines which help our employees to comply with the laws and company regulations.

Protection of Personal Information

To protect personal information of our employees and clients, we comply with all laws and regulations and do our utmost to protect users' interests. We operate Personal Information Protection Committee to discuss and decide measures to protect personal information, and a working-level council to implement policies and promote discussions between teams. We also provide training for those handling personal information to prevent information leakage. Furthermore, we apply various tangible and intangible technical protection measures to strictly control access to and leakage of personal information.
