4.6. Relationship with public authorities and servants
FINATEX 61’s employees shall maintain lawful, ethical and respectful relationships with the authorities and public institutions in such countries where they conduct their business, in line with international provisions on anti-corruption and anti-bribery policies. Such employees involved in any relationship with representatives of public authorities shall have the prior express authorization of the company for such relationship.
Any staff members involved with public administrations shall formally document all decisions made and evidence compliance with internal and external regulations, in order to help any third parties and control bodies within the company to review regulatory compliance in this field.
As a rule of thumb, no employee of FINATEX 61 may offer, grant, demand or accept, whether directly or indirectly, any gifts or donations, favours or compensations, regardless of their nature, to or from any public authorities or servants.
The foregoing does not apply, however, to such gifts and tokens of scarce economic value, equitable and reasonable according to local practice, and transparent, and which are given on account of lawful, socially accepted interests, and which are occasional to avoid that their contents or recurrence might lead any independent third party to question the good faith of the employee or the company. Cash gifts are expressly forbidden.
It is incumbent on each employee to be duly informed and to appropriately assess local practices, taking into account the interest and good name of the company. In case of any doubts, they shall be addressed to the Committee of Ethics.
Anyway, usual practices about gifts and tokens shall be duly monitored, assessed and registered by the company.
FINATEX 61’s employees shall refrain from making any facilitating or expediting payments, consisting of giving out money or any other valuables, regardless of their amount, in order to ensuring or speeding up any bureaucratic proceeding, regardless of its nature, vis-à-vis any court, public administration or official agency.
Employees shall avoid getting any undue tax benefit for FINATEX 61 and shall make sure that the information reported in this field to the tax authorities is true and accurate and fairly presents the real status of the company. They shall also make sure that aid demanded or received from public authorities is duly allocated and that the application for such aid is transparent, without resorting to tampering the application so as to be granted such aid, or allocating it to any use other than the one for which it was granted.
