Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of interest arise when there is a conflict between our personal interests and our responsibilities as employees or representatives of Nordcad. The contours of a potential conflict of interest can be as harmful as an actual conflict.

Conflicts of interest can be based on invitations and representation, gifts, charitable contributions, political contributions, sponsorships, close relationships, and other forms of engagement with entities that compete with Nordcad or do business with Nordcad.

Invitation and Gifting Policy

About invitations, companies offer invitations to their customers and business partners with the aim of enhancing their business relationships. These invitations can include representation, meals, sports events, and travel.

About gifting, a gift is an item given voluntarily without expecting anything in return. When gifts are given in the right manner, they do not leave an impression of unduly influencing business decisions. However, when invitations and gifts are offered in an inappropriate manner, it can create a conflict of interest or give the appearance of bribery.

Our principles:

  • We do not request, accept, or offer invitations or gifts that can influence, or give the impression of influencing, our business decisions, or the decisions of those we work with. Whether invitations and gifts are given or received, they must be done in an appropriate and proper manner, and they must:
    • Comply with local laws and customs.
    • Not place the recipient in a situation where they feel obligated or beholden to the giver.
    • Serve a legitimate business purpose.
    • Not contain immoral content or harm the dignity of others.
    • Be in accordance with the recipient's employer's policy.
  • Invitations: Should have a modest value.
  • Gifts: Should have a symbolic value, such as pens, notebooks, or company merchandise of low value (refer to Nordcad's invitation and gift policy for specific monetary limits). Please note that promotional items are considered gifts.


We define fraud as when a person intentionally tries to deceive another person, acts dishonestly, abuses their position to gain a material advantage, or implicates another person in such actions. Fraud typically occurs when a person wrongfully attempts to obtain money, property, or services. It is an activity that carries legal consequences in most countries.

An example of fraud is false claims, which involve intentionally misleading information or inaccurate recording of costs for materials or services, deliberate concealment of defects, or document forgery.

Our principles:

  • We always act with honesty, fairness, and credibility.
  • Prevention: We prioritize fraud prevention through the implementation of internal controls, policies, and procedures.
  • Detection: We maintain systems and processes to detect potential instances of fraud. This involves monitoring financial transactions, conducting periodic reviews and audits, and implementing whistleblowing mechanisms to encourage reporting of suspicious activities.
  • Investigation: If fraud is suspected or reported, we promptly initiate an investigation. Our dedicated team or external experts conduct thorough and impartial investigations to gather evidence, identify the perpetrators, and determine the extent of the fraudulent activities.
  • Resolution: Once the investigation is complete, appropriate actions are taken based on the findings. This may include disciplinary measures, legal actions, restitution of losses, and improvement of control measures to prevent future occurrences.
  • Reporting: We are committed to maintaining transparency and integrity. Therefore, we report instances of fraud, as necessary, to relevant authorities and stakeholders in compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.


A sponsorship is a transaction that occurs in anticipation of a business benefit, where Nordcad makes a payment, either in cash or in kind, to associate our brand with a specific activity or organization.

Our principles:

  • We select sponsorship activities that focus on providing opportunities for our business and our values. A sponsorship activity should have a direct connection to the business, our areas of operation (such as software, electronic development, etc.), our sustainability agenda, or other business-related topics such as PR, HR, etc. In some cases, we choose sponsorship activities that are related to completed projects constructed by Nordcad.
