Expertise France's Code of Conduct & Ethical Charter

Expertise France condemns corruption in all its forms and ensures that its employees are involved in respecting this. Our common goal is to embed an organizational culture with zero tolerance for corruption in all its forms. The Code of Conduct outlines the rules to be observed to ensure good conduct in activities carried out by Expertise France representatives. The Code decrees the behavior expected from Expertise France employees to prevent corruption, influence peddling, fraud and money laundering, in particular. It is implemented in relations with third parties, in particular with counterparts and stakeholders involved in funded projects, suppliers and Expertise France partners
