Policy summaries

Conflicts of Interest
The policy applies to BAE Systems plc, its wholly owned subsidiaries and their respective employees. All other companies and entities controlled by BAE Systems plc have a substantially equivalent policy applicable to their respective employees.
Our Conflicts of Interest policy concerns situations where competing interests, for example, interests (including financial), relationships, influences or activities, may conflict and impair the ability of employees to make objective and unbiased decisions.
The policy requires that all employees shall ensure that personal interests do not compromise, nor appear to compromise, the employees’ obligations or duties to the Company or the ability to make objective and responsible decisions on behalf of the Company.
Employees are required to notify their manager if an actual, perceived or potential conflict of interest exists or arises. All conflicts of interest are reported to the Business Chief Counsel and recorded in writing in a register and is also recorded in the employee’s personnel file.
Remedial steps are required to be put in place to address conflicts of interest.
