Preliminary monitoring system

SK ecoplant prevents violations of the law by building and operating a preliminary monitoring system that constantly monitors and supervises possible violations.

1) Prior notification system to participate in industry meetings

When attending meetings of the same industry (regular meetings for social and information exchanges, and associations), prepare the details of the meeting in advance and give an electronic approval

  • Fill out the
    participation report
    (by representatives
    of attendees)

    • Proceed the procedure at least one day prior to attending the meeting
  • Give a final approval
    after reviewing
    the appropriateness
    of the meeting

    • Notice on behavioral guidelines when participating in the meeting
    • Propagate the type of unfair common actions
  • Report immediately in case of abnormal behaviors

Principles for participating in industry meetings

  • If an industry meeting violates or is likely to violate fair trade laws, it should be immediately reported to the chief compliance officer through the compliance champion.
  • Participants do not discuss collusion-related issues that are prohibited by the Fair Trade Act such as prices (bid price, determination of successful bidders, and bridesmaids) and transaction conditions at industry meetings.
  • As collusion is punishable only by the fact that there was an agreement even without implementing it, participants should clearly express their intention of not participating in the case when agreements or resolutions are expected to violate the Fair Trade Act.
  • Even if attendees express no active consent and stay silence, their action is considered as participation. Therefore, it is necessary to clearly indicate their objection (in case of writing the minutes, they need to require to stipulate their objection), and immediately notify the intention of refusal by leaving the place.
  • Regarding agendas that have not actually been discussed at the industry meeting or that some participants have simply expressed their opinions, writing it in related documents as if the consensus was made in the form of meeting minutes, information reports, and activity reports, this may be mistaken for collusion or used as evidence of collusion. Therefore, it is necessary to record based on the fact and avoid making false reports. (Thoroughly check the meeting documents)
