Legislative decree no. 231/2001

"The implementation of Legislative Decree no. 231/2001 set forth, for the first time, administrative/criminal liability for (Italian and foreign) organisations should one of the specific crimes contained in the same Legislative Decree be committed by individuals connected to the said organisations. However the decree excludes any liability if the organisation has previously adopted a code of conduct and an efficient supervisory system. At first glance these changes simply seemed to be just another requirement to add to the list but then the real advantage came to light and more and more businesses are ready to take advantage of the multiple benefits of preventing risks and setting up organizational systems and corporate governance which makes corporate bodies more aware and increases efficiency."
