Ethics helpline
Our Ethics Helpline is a confidential way to get more help and advice or report suspected violations of BAE Systems' standards.

The Ethics helpline is available for you to call if you want to tell us about situations where you think the law or our standards may not have been upheld, or where you think an issue or concern that you have reported is not being dealt with properly.

Calls to the Ethics Helpline are free and lines are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Telephone numbers for the Ethics Helpline are shown in the tables below.

When you call the Ethics Helpline, a member of trained staff will take written details then send a confidential report to BAE Systems, but they will not record your call. We use an external company which specialises in operating confidential telephone reporting systems to provide an independent service and assurance to callers of confidentiality and, where they request it, anonymity.

Although we would rather you identified yourself (so you can help us to assess the issues or concerns you are raising and enable us to take quick action to deal with them as well as provide you with updates and feedback), if you wish to make an anonymous call you may do so. Whilst we commit to investigate all calls, it may make it difficult to conduct a thorough investigation into your issue or concern if we do not know how to contact you again.

However, you should not let any concerns go unresolved. If you report apparent misconduct honestly, and in good faith, you will be supported by the Company
