Regulation Compliance:

Regulatory compliance is not only the practice of integrity, but also the core of decreasing operational risks and sustainable developments. ASUS products and services are spread across the world. To ensure that the products and services meet the global regulations, we have a designated legal department that pays close attention to the establishment and development of regulations that have potential influence on ASUS, tracks and evaluates on regulations, and establishes the compliance mechanism of policies and regulations, assisting each department to conform to and implement relevant regulations.

To effectively monitor the regulations, ASUS has established the "ASUS Internal Regulation Identify Management Measures" which identifies and manages environmental, operational, and service-related regulations. Based on the balance principle, we disclose public criminal law cases or administrative law cases that were fined more than 1.5 million NTD or seriously affected the operation of the company in the corporate social responsibility report. We will disclose the identification and the compliance status in the annual CSR report.

European Commission investigation

Regarding the investigation initiated by European Commission against ASUS regarding improper maintenance of retail prices (Case AT.40465), ASUS anticipates that the European Commission will soon take a decision and impose a fine for violation of European competition laws. The expected fine, based on ASUS' best estimation, will be around € 65 million.
ASUS has always treated the compliance seriously. In response to the EU investigation, ASUS will cooperate with the competent authorities during the process. In addition to complying with relevant laws and regulations, we also educate our employees through the training and remind them during work processes to ensure that similar incidents will not occur again.
