Global compliance and ethics

Ensuring compliance to earn your trust

Transforming how people connect with technology—and each other—starts with people trusting technology. For Nuance, that means establishing clear policies, procedures, and protocols to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

Where principles meet protocols

The Nuance Compliance Program is based on trust and integrity. In everything we do⁠—⁠every insight, interaction, and innovation—we act with integrity and ensure our organization effectively and ethically maintains compliance. The compliance program establishes:

  • Oversight by a Chief Compliance Officer and Chief Privacy Officer.
  • A code of conduct outlining our ethical standards and policies.
  • A reporting hotline for confidentially reporting concerns.
  • A Global Compliance Training Program to reinforce our values.
  • Strict protocols for monitoring and auditing the compliance program.
  • Clear procedures to enforce and respond to compliance issues.

Our guide to what’s right

The Nuance code of business conduct and ethics helps our employees and executives make the right decisions and take the right actions in different situations. We’re sharing it so you can see what guides our daily interactions—with each other, with our customers, and as we engage competitors, vendors, shareholders, government regulators, and the community at large.
