OSAKA — Kansai International Airport Co. announced on July 31 that it has created a charter for corporate behavior in the company, which states that if misconduct occurs, the top management will severely punish those responsible, including self-imposing punishment on the management, if necessary.

The semi-public company decided to create the charter in January, after its former president Tsuneharu Hattori was arrested on suspicion of receiving bribes from an Osaka-based oil dealer at the center of a massive tax evasion and fraud scandal. The charter says, among other things, that the company will disclose its business and financial conditions as much as possible, and it will work on establishing a fair and transparent relationship with its business partners, politicians and bureaucrats.
