The Code applies to all employees of the company, including members of the management team.

Rosendin Electric has put in place a Business and Ethics Compliance Program, including an Ethics Hotline, the objective of which is to prevent unethical or unlawful behavior or violations of the Code, to detect such behavior or violations as soon as possible if they do occur, and to take appropriate corrective action immediately in such instances.
