CSC’s corporate policies include the Business Code of Practice and Code of Professional Conduct, which have been approved by the Board and set out CSC’s policy relating to bribery and corruption. Bribery is a criminal offence in the UK under the Bribery Act 2010, and corrupt acts expose CSC and its employees to the risk of prosecution, fines and imprisonment as well as endangering the Company’s reputation. CSC has a zero-tolerance approach to acts of bribery or corruption committed by its employees or other persons acting on its behalf. Any breach of the Business Code of Practice or the Code of Professional Conduct, including breaches relating to bribery and corruption, by employees will be regarded as a serious matter and will be very likely to result in disciplinary action, as well as potential prosecution by the authorities. Similarly, any act by a business partner (supplier, agent or otherwise) acting on behalf of CSC which is in breach of the principles set out in CSC’s Business Code of Practice will be likely to result in a review of CSC’s contracts and relationship with such partners.

The Business Code of Practice and Code of Professional Conduct were updated and re-issued to all employees on 1 July 2011 to coincide with the introduction into force of the Bribery Act 2011. The Codes were issued under cover of a statement by the Chairman and Chief Executive re-inforcing the Board’s committment to ensuring adherence to the highest legal, ethical and moral standards throughout the entire business.
