Compliance reporting on procurement transactions (Supplier Hotline)

Please use this form to report compliance-related matters in your procurement transactions with the Kirin Group.
We are the contact desk to receive specific information from you if you recognize any violation (or potential violation) of laws, regulations, compliance with the Group Compliance Policy, Compliance Guidelines, Kirin Group Anti-Corruption Policy, or other compliance rules committed by Kirin Group officers, employees, or others in any procurement transaction with the Kirin Group.
This contact desk is completely independent from the departments involved in procurement. We guarantee that no disadvantageous treatment will be given to informants, collaborators, and the informant's affiliated companies, and that no retaliatory actions will be taken.
In response to your report, we may ask for your cooperation in investigating the facts.
However, please refrain from making any report that constitutes falsehoods, slander, libel, threats, or obstruction of business. In addition, please confirm that the content of your report does not contain any trade secrets or other confidential information of your company or information that your company is obligated to keep confidential from third parties other than us.
When submitting a report via this form, please agree to the following precautions.
