Procedure when receiving concerns
KONGSBERG has special routines for how recipients of reports of problems are to proceed with further follow up. One fundamental principle underlying the aforementioned routines is that cases should initially be resolved where they arise. This should also be taken into account when choosing the notification channel, cf. point about 'Raising concerns procedures'.
KONGSBERG's Ethics Council is to help raise ethical awareness, ensure ethical behaviour, and protect KONGSBERG's good reputation. Thus the Ethics Council can be involved in matters of principle, general issues or particularly important matters.
The person raising concern should be informed about the further administrative procedure, and be given feedback about the outcome of the case within a reasonable period of time. The outcome of the further follow up may nevertheless be of such a nature that it is not possible to provide detailed feedback, e.g. in personnel cases.
