Compliance at IBB
IBB persistently implements the legal and regulatory requirements of various national and European laws and regulations. The purpose of these requirements is, for instance, to protect personal data (federal and federal-state Data Protection Act), to ward off money laundering, financing of terrorism and other criminal acts (Money Laundering Act, German Banking Act), as well as compliant handling of commercial transactions (German Securities Trading Act).
With a view to these matters, IBB is monitored by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority, the German Bundesbank and the Berlin Commissioner for Data Security and Freedom of Information.
IBB has a central unit to prevent criminal offences, such as subsidy fraud, corruption and embezzlement. This unit carries out preventive measures and performs regular control procedures. That being said, uncovering the criminal offences mentioned above is often not possible without assistance from staff and customers.
This area of responsibility is assigned to Corporate Compliance. Customers, partners and employees can contact Corporate Compliance at any time and on a confidential basis with any questions or information regarding any suspicious circumstances.

External Ombuds Office
As part of its prevention measures to ward off fraud, corruption and other criminal acts, IBB also calls on the services of the law firm of Elke Schaefer that acts as an external ombuds office. This law firm has two contacts available for you.
The ombuds office will handle your information on a confidential basis in order to clarify the matter together with Corporate Compliance. You can also remain anonymous if you wish. Since the attorneys are bound by professional secrecy, your anonymity will remain even in the event of a later investigation by the police or public prosecutor.
