Administrative Responsibility – Model 231

Organisation, management and control model pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001
Legislative Decree no. 231 of 2001 introduced into Italian law the administrative responsibility of companies for certain crimes committed materially by the company’s directors, representatives or employees, in the interest and for the benefit of the Company itself, with consequent fines and disqualifications against the company.
The Company shall not be held liable if it has adopted and effectively implemented, before crimes are committed, the organisational, management and control models needed to prevent the crimes themselves, and has set up a Body responsible for overseeing the functioning and observance of the models.
In compliance with the provisions of the above Decree, Unidata has adopted its own Organisation, Management and Control Model (the “Model”), a Code of Ethics listing the ethical and social values ​​that need to be followed by all those involved in the business. It has entrusted to a Supervisory Body, endowed with autonomous powers of initiative and control, the task of supervising the functioning and observance of the Model, and updating it over time.
The Model consists of an organic set of principles, rules and provisions regarding the management and control of each business process.
The Model adopted by Unidata is consistent with the contents of the Decree and forms part of the company’s broader policy aimed at raising the awareness of both internal staff and external collaborators and business partners regarding the transparent and respectful management of current regulations and fundamental ethical principles in the pursuit of corporate objectives. The Model consists of a “General Part” and “Special Parts” considering the different types of Crimes and Offences to be prevented.
The Supervisory Body has the task of ensuring compliance with the provisions of the Organisational Model, checking its effectiveness and assessing the need for updates, with reference to “risk areas”.
All information regarding the Model and its application and/or breaches or suspected breaches can be reported to the Supervisory Body at the following email address: odv231@unidata.it.
