DEKRA has been a member of the TIC Council, which emerged from the IFIA and CEOC testing, inspection and certification bodies, since 2014. The Council has drawn up sector-specific codes of conduct. These are regularly reviewed and updated by specially constituted committees. The codes represent uniform rules and processes to be followed by the member companies. Implementation of the TIC Council Compliance Guidelines is embedded in the compliance program of the entire DEKRA Group. DEKRA's global compliance management system is audited annually by external auditors. To fulfill the requirements of the TIC Council, as well as national and international compliance standards, laws, and regulations, the DEKRA Compliance Program is continually monitored and improved by our international compliance experts within the DEKRA Compliance organization.
