Our main principles and principles regarding the possible risk areas where bribery and corruption acts may occur are detailed below:

There are effective internal control mechanisms in our business processes to prevent potential bribery and corruption risks.

3.2. Accepting and Giving Gifts

Beyçelik Gestamp employees may not give or accept any gifts to persons or organizations with whom they have a business relationship that have a high material value or that may affect the impartiality of the other party, that may cause or be perceived as causing a dependency relationship. When in doubt about this issue, the opinion of a senior manager is taken. They may not request or accept any discounts, donations, money, checks, goods or property, free vacations, special discounts, etc. from third parties, institutions and organizations that may be perceived as inappropriate.

3.4. Political Activities
