Our anti-bribery and anti-corruption commitment to you
Bribery of any government official in any country is strictly against Elliott Mobility’s policy, even if the refusal to make such a payment would result in the company losing a business opportunity. Every country, to our knowledge, prohibits the bribery of its own officials. Many countries have laws that make it illegal to bribe officials of other countries. In the U.S, that law is the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Employees with duties involving trade or travel outside of the U.S. must be familiar with this act.
South Africa also adopts this practice called Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) recommendations on reducing corruption. The OECD Recommendations on Combating Bribery, Bribe Solicitation and Extortion (2011) requires enterprises not to directly or indirectly, offer, promise, give or demand a bribe or other undue advantage to obtain or retain business or other improper advantage. Enterprises should also resist the solicitation of bribes and extortion.
These obligations are not different to the six guidelines used to create an adequate procedure against the UK Bribery Act prosecution. It’s important for South African businesses to initiate a robust anti-corruption programme to comply with and avoid the UK Bribery Act and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act prosecution. However, it’s clear that South African companies should be doing this in any event, to ensure compliance with the Companies Act.
By agreeing and committing not to be involved or implicated in any Act of Anti-Bribery or Corruption, Elliott Mobility undertakes to:
- Never engage in any form of bribery, either directly or through a third party.
- Never offer or make an improper payment, or authorise an improper payment (cash or otherwise) to any individual, including any local or foreign official anywhere in the world.
- Never attempt to entice an individual, or a local foreign official to act illegally or improperly.
- Never offer, or accept, money or anything of value, such as flights, kickbacks or commissions, about the procurement of business or the award of a contract.
- Never offer or give any gift or token of hospitality to any public employee or government official or representative if there is any expectation or implication for a return favour.
- Never accept any gift from any business partner if there is any suggestion that a return favour will be expected or implied.
- Never facilitate payments to obtain a level of service which one would not normally be entitled to.
- Never disregard or fail to report any indication of improper payments to the appropriate authorities.
- Neve entice or assist another individual to break any applicable law or regulation
