Open Reporting Policy

Medcare Shipping SA commits to conduct all aspects of its business with honesty and integrity and to provide a working environment where high standards of ethical, moral, and legal business conduct are encouraged and safeguarded.


Furthermore, Medcare Shipping SA is committed to a workplace characterized by open communication regarding its business practices. This Policy aims to provide a means for employees to raise concerns, not adequately addressed via usual reporting channels, without fear of retaliation or discrimination. This Policy addresses concerns related to issues of public interest, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Criminal offense
  • Non-compliance with legislation or Company’s procedures
  • Dishonesty, either verbal or written, including intentional inaccurate maintenance of official log books or records
  • Malpractice or unethical conduct
  • Financial or non-financial misadministration or malpractice or impropriety or fraud
  • Safety or security risk or hazardous condition that may impact the life or health of individuals
  • Miscarriages of justice
  • Deliberate concealment of any of the above.

If an employee has a legitimate concern in (and holds a reasonable belief that the information he has relates to) one of the above areas and wishes to raise the concern in good faith, he must raise this concern with the Master, DPA, or a Company’s representative who can decide on a way of resolving the concern quickly and effectively.


Any concern can be raised through the following channels:


Tel.: +30 210 8982019 (Open Reporting Hotline)


Reports can be made without fear of retaliation and can even be anonymous. Upon receipt of a report, the Top Management assesses the report, and an investigation immediately begins. Any victimization of a member of staff who openly reports, or any attempt to deter him from reporting, is regarded as a serious disciplinary offense.
