A correct business conduct necessarily includes rigorous adherence to every principle of good corporate management.
First comes compliance with our strict ethics and Compliance rules for honest conduct when dealing with customers, business partners, employees, shareholders and the public.

Ombudsman: independent, external Contact Person
The ombudsman protects the identity of a whistleblower through his obligation of secrecy as a lawyer. The identity of the whistleblower will only be disclosed to the investigating bodies of the company upon request and with the express consent of the whistleblower. A professional infrastructure and clearly defined processes from receipt to processing of a report ensure that all reports are processed quickly.
Rheinmetall AG has appointed the Frankfurt lawyer Dr. Rainer Buchert as ombudsman of the Group and its subsidiaries. He serves all Rheinmetall employees worldwide as an external contact point for compliance violations.
