The CCO is responsible for implementing and evolving the compliance management system throughout the Group. He is supported by a Group-wide compliance officer system that consists of Regional Compliance Officers, Area Compliance Officers, and Local Compliance Officers. They ensure that the compliance management system is applied correctly in their respective areas of responsibility. A central Compliance Office coordinates all compliance activities throughout the Group and advises employees on key issues.
The business combination agreement concluded between Diebold Inc. and Wincor Nixdorf AG includes provisions relating to integration activities, the aim being to identify and realign possible differences within the two compliance systems and introduce a compliance system tailored to US requirements in a timely manner for the combined Diebold Nixdorf Group.
