Since establishing an internal reporting system in 2006, Topcon has worked to identify risks and compliance issues (such as known or suspected conduct that violates laws, regulations, or internal rules, or that runs counter to social norms) at an early stage, and to take corrective actions against them. The system enables whistleblowers to contact the Corporate Audit Division directly, as the responsible division, apart from the normal internal routes for information in the organizational structure.

The Corporate Audit Division takes prompt and appropriate actions to discover and address the involved risks at an early stage, in response to any information that is directly reported. We are working to promote compliance management on a Group-wide basis by expanding the adoption of the system every year, including the establishment of such systems at Group companies in Japan and overseas.
