Ordnance Survey recognises that bribery undermines free and fair competition between businesses and damages customer and business confidence. We welcome the implementation of the Bribery Act 2010 and confirm our on-going commitment to carrying out our business fairly, honestly and openly.
Ordnance Survey, its directors and staff take a zero tolerance approach to any form of bribery, which means we will:
- only deal with organisations and individuals that share our commitment to bribery prevention and will terminate any contract with an organisation or individual who breaches contractual provisions relating to bribery prevention;
- review and monitor our policies and procedures to ensure that these support both bribery prevention and the safe and confidential disclosure of bribery allegations;
- take disciplinary action against any member of staff who actively or knowingly engages in bribery.
