Our leadership is held accountable for compliance across the company. Our general counsel, who also serves as TI's chief compliance officer, provides an annual report on the implementation and effectiveness of TI's Ethics and Compliance Program to the board's Audit Committee.
Our Ethics Office also notifies the Audit Committee each quarter about misconduct issues. If a serious issue occurs between board meetings, the chief compliance officer or the Ethics Office promptly notifies the Audit Committee chair.
We monitor our compliance environment to ensure that focus areas remain current, that our compliance programs remain robust, and that the company remains positioned to address emerging risk areas that could impact global operations.
We investigate all reported issues, take appropriate action, and notify key authorities.
