The Bribery Act 2010 came into force on 1st July 2011 with the principle aim of preventing acts of bribery and cleaning up business practices both in the UK and abroad.
The Bribery Act imposes a number of requirements and obligations upon business, particularly those dealing across borders and/or with public officials. From top-level management to employees, agents, subcontractors and other third-party associates, the responsibility for avoiding bribery and corruption applies throughout an organisation.
This Bribery Act Policy is a key tool for businesses in ensuring compliance with the Bribery Act. The policy addresses important bribery-related matters including gifts and hospitality, payments to officials, and political and charitable donations.
By implementing this policy in conjunction with appropriate training at all levels and, where appropriate, in combination with related policies from Simply-Docs (including our Business Ethical Policy and Hospitality and Gifts Policy), you can take significant and important steps towards ensuring that your business is in compliance with this important legislation.
