Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy

It is illegal to offer, promise, give, request, agree, receive or accept bribes – an anti-bribery policy can help protect your business.

You should have an anti-bribery policy if there is a risk that someone who works for you or on your behalf might be exposed to bribery.

Your anti-bribery policy should be appropriate to the level of risk your business faces. Your policy should include:

  • Your approach to reducing and controlling the risks of bribery;
  • Rules about accepting gifts, hospitality or donations;
  • Guidance on how to conduct your business, e.g. negotiating contracts;
  • Rules on avoiding or stopping conflicts of interest.

Once you have an anti-bribery policy you should:

  • tell your staff and make sure they understand the policy;
  • monitor and review your policy regularly;
  • Outline any consequences of not adopting the policy.
