Compliance, Corporately Speaking
Compliance is an integral part of safety, the partnership and our business basics--the foundation of our business. We should be proud of our longstanding commitment to compliance. One of our objectives in 1997 is to strengthen that longstanding commitment to full compliance. As part of the implementation of the new CES Policy, I am issuing our T&CS Compliance Plan.
The T&CS Compliance Plan demonstrates our commitment to compliance and the methods and activities used to ensure compliance. It also outlines everyone's responsibilities for ensuring our work is performed in compliance with our commitments. Also, it identifies corrective actions that we must act upon to develop, implement, and maintain compliance.
Please review the Plan and take the appropriate implementing actions. With your help, we will fortify our Compliance Program to prevent, detect and correct noncompliances with CES commitments.
