INTERACTING WITH GOVERNMENTS

SMCS GROUP operates in numerous geographical jurisdictions. We maintain ethical relationships with governments and their officials. Our ability to conduct business is directly affected by government decision-making and it is important we have open and constructive relationships with government.

SMCS GROUP’s┬áCode of Conduct┬árepresents our commitment to uphold ethical business practices and meet or exceed applicable legal requirements. We believe that exercising consistent and proper business conduct creates loyalty and trust with our stakeholders.

By following local and international anti-corruption laws, we prohibit authorising, offering, giving or promising anything of value directly or indirectly (via a third party) to a government official to influence official action, or to anyone to encourage them to perform their work disloyally or otherwise improperly. We also require that third parties acting on our behalf operate to SMCS GROUP standards do not violate anti-corruption laws.
