Compass in the hand


Ensure compliance, corporate citizenship & ethics in-house & among our partners





Establishing governance is not simply about oversight and regulatory obligation, It's about promoting trust and setting an ethical example, both in the additive manufacturing (AM) industry and on a broader, societal level. Our governance efforts are based on our values of excellence, responsibility, fairness and togetherness. We strive to ensure that both our employees and our business partners uphold these values and that they're readily apparent in actions we take as an organization.




Keeping high standards across the board

While they only represent one part of our compliance and governance approach, we view our regulatory requirements as opportunities to steadily become more responsible, ethical, equitable and transparent as an organization. We comply with all relevant legal regulations and internally defined rules.


We exemplify our commitment to regulatory compliance through our adherence to environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards:

GRI to ESRS: The GRI is our current framework for corporate sustainability reporting. With the EU's Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) having come into effect as of 2023, we will begin preparing this reporting using European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) as well as the EU Taxonomy. 

Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (often referred to as Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz): We're currently in the process of implementing the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act throughout the business to be ready for January 2024.

ISO: We are VDA ISA (TISAX®), ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 compliant. Also, we're contributing to the development of the forthcoming ISO/TC 261 IG 78 guidelines for AM industry safety and striving to be ISO/IEC 27001 certified soon.

Transparency is important to us. That’s why we disclose our sustainability activities additionally through international ratings and rankings such as CDP and EcoVadis and participation in the UN Global Compact and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Compliance management

Our compliance management team is responsible for compliance, risk management, occupational and product safety, data protection, information security and other regulatory matters. To ensure continuous progress and a coordinated company-wide strategy, everyone on the team reports to our global Chief Compliance Officer. Working together with local managers in accordance with a "prevent, detect and respond" philosophy, the department has implemented a compliance management system aligned with current international standards and norms. The Compliance Committee assesses all relevant compliance issues on a quarterly basis. Our Compliance Department: 

  • Systematically prevents breaches of the law,
  • Minimizes reputational risks,
  • Establishes compliance as a business value



Personal conduct framework

The EOS Code of Conduct serves as a model of integrity and is binding for all employees worldwide. All EOS employees follow these high standards of compliance, integrity and ethics closely, and we implement corrective measures for the necessary learning process as employees adapt, reserving disciplinary measures as a last instance for more severe or frequent violations.


Speak Up! A resource for whistleblowers

Open and honest communication is an expectation, not an exception. Thus we offer confidentiality to those reporting unethical or unsafe activities, via our internationally accessible Speak Up! whistleblower hotline.

This digital platform enables anonymous reporting of issues such as discrimination and harassment, environmental hazards, health and safety concerns, the unauthorized activities of business partners and other forms of non-compliance. Whistleblowers can also use Speak Up! to view the status of their report and communicate with the Compliance Department.

Risk management

Every department, permanent establishment and subsidiary follows the same procedure and reports quarterly on risks.


Governance for partner risks

The high standards we expect at EOS extend to our partners. All sales partners undergo risk-based due diligence examinations to avoid dealing with corrupt or anti-competitive organizations. Meanwhile, our business partners and external service providers must follow our Business Partner Code of Conduct demanding compliance with all applicable laws, industry regulations and EOS requirements.
