Anti-Corruption and Bribery Policy

Consumers International is committed to carrying out all our activities in an honest and ethical manner and we take a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption.

Consumers International will uphold all laws relevant to countering bribery and corruption in every country in which we operate. In particular, as Consumers International is established in the UK, we are bound by the Bribery Act 2010, in respect of our conduct both in the UK and abroad.

Under the Bribery Act 2010, it is a criminal offence to offer, promise, give, request, or accept a bribe. Individuals found guilty can be punished by up to ten years’ imprisonment and/or fine. If Consumers International, as an organisation, fails to prevent bribery by individuals associated with us, we can face an unlimited fine, be excluded from tendering for public contracts and suffer damage to our reputation.

This policy applies to all persons who are involved with Consumers International at all levels. Contractors and other persons associated with Consumers International will be required to abide by the requirements set out in this policy as part of their terms of engagement.
