Code of Ethics
Legislative Decree 231/2001 (Regulation on the administrative liability of legal persons, companies and associations even without legal personality) provides that an entity may be held liable – with consequent application of significant sanctions of both of a pecuniary and injunctive nature – in relation to certain specific crimes, committed or attempted, by senior management and subordinates in the interest or to the benefit of the entity itself.
In the event of the commission of a crime, the exemption from administrative liability exists, among other things, if the entity proves that it previously adopted and effectively implemented an Organizational, Management and Control Model suitable for preventing crimes of the type that occurred.
To this end, Acciai Vender S.p.A. – with a resolution of the Board of Directors of 18 July 2022 – adopted its own Organizational, Management and Control Model, consisting of a set of control procedures and rules, which the company functions must comply with when carrying out their activities.

Organizational, Management and Control Model includes – as an essential and binding element – the “Code of Ethics”, which is an instrument through which the values that Acciai Vender S.p.A. declares, accepts and shares in carrying out its business are defined in order to maximize the efficiency, reliability and reputation of the Company, which are key factors for its success and for the continuous improvement of the conditions in which
Acciai Vender S.p.A. itself operates.
