Ethics & Compliance

At Applus+, we are convinced that the use of principles and value-driven management practices achieve more efficient and competitive results, thereby ensuring profitable and sustainable growth.

The Applus+ corporate reputation is one of our group's most valuable assets and a key component in service developments. Impartiality, independence and integrity are therefore the cornerstones of our Code of Ethics.

All of these values are shared and endorsed by our team, so reinforcing our group's unity and cohesion, which will in turn help us achieve our strategy of sustainable and profitable growth.

In 2018, the Code of Ethics was reviewed and reformulated. The launch of our new Code of Ethics is supported by an extensive implementation program to ensure that all employees have read and understood it; that directors are familiar with the internal policies and procedures of the Code and that Applus+ has implemented an effective Compliance Program.

Health, Safety, Quality and Environment (HSQE)

At Applus+, health and safety, quality and the environment (HSQE) are core elements of our activities and culture.

When performing its services, Applus+ promotes staff innovation, quality and safety of people as well as integrity of the client's assets in order to meet the growing demands of the market, the authorities and end users.

Beyond the services we offer at Applus+, we strive to improve the quality and safety of our management systems for the benefit of the environment and the relations with our clients, staff and suppliers.

The active support of all our team enables us to meet this commitment at all levels of management: divisional, regional and national.

We achieve these changes by establishing good practice that promotes and supports the numerous initiatives developed at local level. As a result, responsible practices and behavior are promoted throughout the entire business.

The principles governing these activities are detailed in our HSQE policy and in our environmental management policy, both of which comply with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.
