The ethics alert is an internal alert system put in place by Annex Petroleum & Gas Services which is intended to allow employees to bring to the attention of a dedicated referent (see hereafter for details ) a behavior or a situation either potentially contrary to SPIE’s Code of ethics or which are liable to constitute breaches of probity.
The purpose of this alert is to put an end to the “unethical” behavior and to take appropriate sanctions, if necessary.
