Entities must implement effective policies and adequate procedures to prohibit involvement in bribery in all business practices and transactions that are carried out by them, or on their behalf by Business Partners. They will not offer, accept or countenance any payments, gifts in kind, hospitality, expenses or promises as such that may compromise the principles of fair competition or constitute an attempt to obtain or retain business for or with, or direct business to, any person; to influence the course of the business or governmental decision-making process.
Entities will provide systems for the reporting and investigation of allegations of attempted bribery or inappropriate gifts within their organisation and will apply the appropriate sanctions for bribery and attempted bribery in all forms. This will include clear communication to their workers that they will not suffer retaliation for such reports or refusing to pay a bribe or facilitation payment even if this action may result in the entity losing business.
