Organisational model pursuant to Legislative decree 231/2001
Legislative decree no. 231 dated 8 June 2001 regulates the administrative responsibility of legal persons, companies and associations, including those without juridical status. Organisations and companies can be exonerated from responsibility if they can prove that they have adopted and implemented organisational and management models to prevent the committing of the crimes envisaged by the decree.
Veronafiere, in strict observance of the company’s primary values (including ethics and transparency), is sensitive to the expectations of its clients, shareholders and employees, being aware of the value that they can gain from a system of presidia to prevent the committing of crimes by its business departments, employees, collaborators and business partners.
In this context, Veronafiere has implemented an Organisational, Management and Control Model which describes the behavioural system that the company has adopted in order to prevent the committing of the different types of crime contemplated by decree 231/2001.
The principles contained in the organisational model are aimed, on one hand, at making the person potentially capable of committing the crime fully aware that such crime is strongly condemned by the organisation, in that it goes against the deontological standards that inspire it and against its interests. On the other hand, they aim to allow Veronafiere to act to prevent the committing of said crime and/or to sanction unlawful behaviour.
The Regulatory Board, holding independent powers of initiative and control in the event of breaches of the organisational model, can be contact by writing to the OdV at the administrative offices of Veronafiere (Veronafiere, Viale del Lavoro 8, 37135 Verona – Italy), or to the email address [email protected] .
The General Part of the Model is printed below, with a view to illustrating the contents of Legislative Decree 231/2001, the function and the principles of the Model, identification of the risk activities, definition of protocols, the characteristics and operation of the Regulatory Board, training and informative activities and the sanctioning system.
