Medicover Anti-Bribery Policy
Medicover is committed to act under the highest ethical standards and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and would rather lose a piece of business than obtain it illegally.
Medicover Anti-Bribery Policy sets the rules to be applied in order to prevent bribes in all activities under Medicover’s control. We do not tolerate any form of bribery and prohibit our employees and business representatives from giving or receiving bribes of any kind.
In short, Medicover Anti-Bribery Policy prohibits the following:
- An employee or business representative may not receive, accept a promise of or request an improper benefit for the carrying out of the employment or assignment (passive bribery).
- It is not permitted to provide, promise or offer an improper benefit to an employee or business representative for the carrying out of the employment or assignment (active bribery).
- It is not permitted to receive, accept a promise of or request an improper benefit in order to influence a person who exercises public authority or decides on public procurements, or to provide, promise or offer an improper benefit in order for the recipient to influence the decision maker when exercising public authority or deciding on a public procurement (trading in influence).
- Caution must be observed when cash or other assets are provided to representatives, agents, cooperation partners and other representatives to ensure that the funds are not used for bribes (negligent financing of bribery).
The precise legal definition of bribery varies between countries, but the above principles generally apply.
As Medicover Anti-Bribery Policy cannot address all local legal issues in all countries in which Medicover operates, where a law conflicts with the policy, the stricter prevails.
