Viega Code of Conduct

The word “compliance” is ubiquitous in the business world of today. It refers to a company’s obligations to follow all of the laws and regulations set by national bodies and controlling authorities that apply to its operations. Meeting these obligations requires appropriate measures to be put in place and adhered to: these include the internal rules and standards that a company and its owners impose on themselves. Here, we will provide a brief overview of the areas that compliance affects and information on how to download our Code of Conduct.

Compliance: an ongoing process

Compliance means more than just adhering to laws – it is an ongoing process. Every single person is expected to be familiar with the Viega Code of Conduct and to factor it into the decisions they make. 

Our values: guiding principles

Viega’s values, which include respect, trust, responsibility, courage and clear goals, form the basis of the efforts we make to ensure compliance. They act as our guiding principles.
