Additionally, an internal reporting structure is in place, and a reporting hotline is available both within and outside of Axell, which allows for whistle-blowers to be protected and for Axell to focus on researching the issue at hand in case of internal problems. While seeking advice from advisory lawyers as required, Axell shall work to improve its Risk Management Structure.
