SUPPORTING SMEs AGAINST CORRUPTION

In occasion of the International Anti-corruption Day 2017, the partners of the European Project ACTS, in collaboration with the Belgian Ministry of Economy and the International Chamber of Commerce in Belgium organized the event "Supporting SMEs against corruption", to discuss with EU insitutions and  stakeholders the tools and actions to be taken from European SMEs to prevent corrution.

Objective 2

Objective 2 concerns the identification and realisation of tools and best practices for rendering SMEs more “corruption-proof,” encouraging them to play an active role. They will be given a toolkit containing procedures for self-evaluation of their exposure to corruption when they open an entrepreneurial activity in a particular economic and/or territorial sector. The toolkit will also contain measures to mitigate the probability of becoming a victim of corruptive phenomena. (As a typical example of a best practice: “To discourage potential corruptive behaviour, never receive a public official alone.”). A measurable indicator of success in achieving Objective 2 will be the number and quality of best practices and procedures contained in the toolkit.
