Join the Fight against Financial Crime and legal/regulatory and internal Breaches!

The economic damage caused by financial criminal activities (for example fraud, theft, embezzlement, corruption) and other internal or legal/regulatory misbehavior is constantly increasing. Along with immediate material losses, damage to the reputation can in extreme cases also threaten a company’s existence and endanger jobs.

Commerzbank committed itself to fight such misbehavior. With regard to prevention and prosecution of such activities we depend on your assistance. In many cases reports from employees, clients or third parties have revealed such incidents and initiated an investigation and prosecution of these activities.

We therefore decided to introduce a standardised notification system in addition to the existing communication channels, for example via superiors, internal Audit or Compliance. The BKMS®-System (Business Keeper Monitoring System) is an internet based application, which enables employees, clients and third parties to report financial criminal activities and unlawful / company damaging misbehavior (in favor of or against the bank) by name or anonymously out of ethical responsibility or moral conflict at any time of day.

Commerzbank has set up the BKMS®-System to receive reports on financial criminal activities and breaches of legal, regulatory and internal requirements. Reports outside of this focus will not be handled by this system. The BKMS®-System is not an emergency system (see also “What reports should be submitted via the system?”).

We value an open communication with our clients and employees and we therefore would like to encourage you to submit your report under your name. Regardless of this we would like to ask you to set up a secured postbox in the system. This will support communication and handling of your submitted report. Your information will be handled strictly confidential.

This internet-based system allows you to raise concerns freely and without fear of retaliation. Reports will be treated in a strictly confidential manner. Upon request, Commerzbank grants individuals having submitted a report to the bank via this system reasonable access to personal data that it received about them. In addition, the bank takes reasonable steps to permit these individuals to correct, amend, or delete data that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete.

Employees, clients and third parties who raise concerns need not fear harassment or retaliation. All concerns should be raised in good faith. Raising concerns “in good faith” means that an individual making a report believes that what he or she is asserting is true, whether or not subsequent investigation proves what they have asserted to be true. This system must not be abused by consciously submitting false or defamatory reports or information. Reports that are intended to denounce or defame other people against one’s own better knowledge, will not be tolerated and may have personal consequences or may be prosecuted.

Please note: that you can only use the BKMS®-Portal on this internet webpage to submit reports for the below mentioned entity. For reports that concern other Commerzbank Group entities, subsidiaries or other international branches, please use the relevant BKMS®-Portal on the entity´s internet site or the links as listed on the Commerzbank Group internet site.

You can of course also submit your information by written letter to the address or fax number mentioned below.

  • Why should I submit a report?

    A positive and honest corporate culture of course requires the observance of legal, regulatory and internal guidelines.
    You may have potential information about financial criminal activities or breaches of the before mentioned guidelines that could damage our company and in extreme cases could threaten our existence. With the submission of your report, you can contribute to reveal those activities and prevent potential financial loss and material reputational damage.

  • What reports should be submitted via the system?

    Besides financial criminal activities all breaches of legal, regulatory or internal requirements/rules connected to Commerzbank should be reported.

    For claims or complaints, our Quality Management Department will offer assistance.

    The BKMS®-System is not an emergency system. For an emergency blocking or loss report, please refer to the published official hotlines, mailboxes or contacts.

    Further information about the above mentioned possible reporting topics will be provided in the course of the reporting process.

    It is prohibited to abuse this system by knowingly submitting false or slanderous information.

  • How will my report be processed and how can I set up a postbox?

    To submit a report, start by clicking the “Submit Report” button located on the top left side of the home page.

    The reporting process consists of four steps:

    1. You will receive information about the technical measures with which this reporting system guarantees the security of your data and you will also be requested to answer a security check.
    2. On the following pages you will be asked about the focus of your report.
    3. On the report page you need to formulate your report in your own words and answer questions about the case. You are provided with 4096 characters for your personal text, which relates to a full A4 sheet of paper. To support your report you may also upload small data of up to 2MB. Please be aware that documents may contain information about the author.
    4. After sending your report you will receive a reference number which serves as proof that you have sent it. Finally after this you can than set up your own secured “Postbox.” This can then be used to receive feed-back, to answer questions by the person processing the report and this is also how you will be informed about the processing of your information.

    Should you already have an secured postbox in the BKMS® System, you can go straight to your postbox via the “Login” button. You will also need to answer the security check and then you can register with the system.

  • How can I receive feedback?

    The uppermost priority of the BKMS® System is the protection of the person placing the report. The technical provisions guaranteeing the confidentiality of the system’s data are certified and can be verified by you at any time.

    By setting up your secured postbox you can select your own alias and password. Your report will be kept anonymous by means of encryption and other special security technology

    You will receive feedback about the processing of your information from the Commerzbank via the secured postbox. The entire correspondence about your report will be directed via this postbox. If you desire you may also remain anonymous throughout this dialogue.
