Business Conduct Policies
Dealing with Governments
Many 3M business units do business with one or more governmental bodies. This may include business with federal, state or local authorities, or with government prime contractors or subcontractors in the United States, or with national or local government agencies or government prime contractors or subcontractors outside the United States. Many laws and regulations apply in these situations. 3M is committed to being a responsible company with uncompromising integrity in all its dealings with local, state/provincial and national governments, and their prime contractors and subcontractors around the world. Before beginning to work with these entities, those acting on 3M’s behalf must understand the rules that apply to working and interacting with governments and government officials.
