All IET volunteers, suppliers, consultants, contractors and agents are required to read, understand and adhere to this policy at all times whilst working or acting for the IET and any of its subsidiaries.
The Bribery Act 2010 came into force on 1st July 2011. As a consequence, the IET instituted an Anti-Bribery Policy with immediate effect.
A bribe is deemed to be any inducement or reward offered, promised or provided in order to gain any commercial, contractual, regulatory or personal advantage, and/or to persuade someone to do something which they would not normally do in the course of their duties, or conversely to persuade someone not to do something that they should do.
This policy applies to all IET volunteers, suppliers, consultants, contractors and agents.
