Bribery

Board members must be familiar with the provisions of the Bribery Act 2010 which came into force on 1 July 2011. The Act makes it a criminal offence for a person to take part in active bribery (making a bribe) or passive bribery (receiving a bribe). All public bodies operate a zero tolerance approach to bribery, with any allegations investigated in accordance with the relevant procedures and reported to the appropriate authorities.
