The Office is responsible for monitoring and controlling the companys internal business operations to prevent breach of required laws and regulations. Main tasks of the Office are currently as follows:
Coordinate with respective departments to carry out legal compliance work; Conduct legal compliance training on employees who deal directly with external parties including sales representatives, procurement personnel, and customer service representatives, in order to ensure that these employees acquire correct legal compliance concepts; established an internal legal compliance mechanism for reporting of any incident of breach or for timely clarification of any doubts any employee may have with respect to particular legal compliance requirements to caution against small issues before they become more apparent.

  
Fair Competition
 

Since 2006, CPT and several affiliated overseas corporations were investigated by law enforcements of multiple countries as part of litigations against TFT-LCD manufacturers for price fixing. CPT had admitted to such claims and paid the required fines. The Fair Trade Commission of Taiwan also ordered CPT to provide relevant information in 2008, which CPT has obliged as legally required. In terms of civil compensation, CPT is doing everything it can to resolve the lawsuit with consumers and governments of all countries involved.  In terms of the antitrust case of CRT products, CPT had proactively cooperated with the governments of all countries involved, and therefore was not fined. CPT had always had a tradition of legal compliance, and continues its tradition of working with all countries involved with utmost honesty and integrity over resolving relevant matters. CPT understands that complying with competition legislation is a very crucial part of commercial activities. CPT will continue to strictly observe relevant legislations. Internally, CPT will continue implementing legal compliance education. Externally, CPT will cooperate with fair trade policies of all countries involved in hopes of maintaining a positive corporate image.
