Our security departments at all our sites undertake risk of corruption assessments as part of their risk assessment processes. These assessments are reviewed regularly by sites. Where the risk is considered high this can result in an investigation jointly be the Corporate Security Compliance and Assurance staff and forensic investigators.

Other disciplines also consider the risk of corruption as part of their ongoing risk management processes. Group Internal Audit along with Group Compliance undertakes annual assurance of site risks as part of the Combined Assurance process which includes assessing the risk of corruption.

In addition, our Code of Business Principles and Ethics and related policies are provided to all employees (100%), and all employees have been advised that the company will take active steps against fraud and corruption in all its forms, including bribery and extortion. Our Group Compliance team provide both DVD training specifically for employees who do not have access to computers, and online training for others. In addition, face-to-face training is provided at the site level (using a risk based assessment to determine the content of the presentations and the specific sites). An online code of ethics training module, launched in September 2012, contains two anti-bribery modules. A bribery and corruption prevention on-line module was also launched to employees most at risk.
