This booklet sets forth our basic standards and rules, and is intended to formalize the Company's existing ethical and procedural guidelines, and provide you with a readily accessible tool to help assure compliance. The maintenance of the highest standards of business conduct and responsiveness to social concerns contributes to the reputation, financial success, and future growth of our Company. The policies in this booklet reflect the Company's ongoing commitment to these standards.
You are expected to read the Code and become familiar with its contents. All employees, officers and directors must abide by the Code, and maintain the highest standards of personal and professional conduct in the performance of any and all business activities.
The Code of Business Conduct and Corporate Ethics Policy (the "Code") of GRS International is a statement of the policies and procedures of the Company (as defined below) for conducting its business in a legal and ethical manner. It has been issued to all employees, officers and directors in order to reaffirm the Company's existing policies relating to ethical standards and business practices.
The Code includes provisions from existing corporate policies to provide an accessible reference for all employees, officers and directors. Certain corporate policies set forth more detailed information on subjects covered by the Code. All policies and procedures in the Code apply to all employees and officers of GRS International, its subsidiaries and its controlled affiliates (collectively the "Company"),whether operating inside or outside of India. Certain policies and procedures in the Code apply to all directors of the Company, whether operating inside or outside of India.
The Company expects you, and all its other employees, officers and directors to observe high ethical standards in the performance of your respective duties, and to observe all laws and regulations governing business transactions and practices. The Company's policy is to prevent the occurrence of illegal or unethical behavior, to halt any illegal or unethical behavior that may occur as soon as reasonably possible after its discovery, and to discipline those who violate the Code, including individuals responsible for the failure to exercise proper supervision and oversight to detect and report a violation by their subordinate employees. Discipline may, when appropriate, include termination.
Government regulation of business activities continues to increase, which results in more complex laws, regulations and procedures. Accordingly, whenever the legality or propriety of any proposed course of conduct which you are involved in is subject to question, it is incumbent upon you to obtain advice concerning these policies from the person to whom you report, and, when appropriate, to request advice from , the Company's General Counsel. If you have a question regarding the applicability or interpretation of the Code you should utilize the procedures specified in the section entitled "IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CODE".
The Code is not a contract, and is not intended to create any contractual obligations on the part of the Company or its subsidiaries or affiliates. The Code also does not alter the existing at-will employment relationship between the Company and any employee or officer.
As an employee, officer or director of the Company, you are required to comply with the laws and highest standards of business ethics and conduct in every country in which the Company does business. You cannot justify or be excused from the consequences of an action which is prohibited by the Company by saying that you were ordered to perform the action by someone higher in authority. No one is ever authorized by the Company to direct you to commit a prohibited act. You are responsible for your own actions. You must acquaint yourself with the legal standards and restrictions applicable to your assigned duties and responsibilities, and conduct yourself accordingly. You also should understand that compliance with the letter of the law, but not the spirit, is insufficient. Even the appearance of unethical or inappropriate behavior could have a negative impact on the Company and its employees, officers and directors.
You must avoid any investment, interest, or association that interferes, might interfere or appears to interfere with the independent exercise of your own individual best judgment, and with your obligation to perform your responsibilities in the best interests of the Company.

(3) shall not do business with a close relative on behalf of the Company, unless the transaction is on arms-length terms and is disclosed, in writing, to the Chief Financial Officer of the Company (and so long as the Company's legal counsel determines that the transaction is not inconsistent with the purposes of this policy).
(4) shall not, directly or indirectly, own any financial interest in or hold any employment or managerial position with any firm or corporation which is a competitor of or which does or seeks to do business with the Company if such interest or position may influence any decision that he or she might make in the performance of his or her duties.

The General Counsel shall review each such case with the Company's legal counsel, and they shall determine whether the existence of such interest or position is or may be in conflict with this policy or otherwise detrimental to the best interests of the Company or any of its operations. If it is determined that such conflict or detrimental effect may occur, such steps as are necessary to correct the situation will be immediately instituted.
