Corruption

We are aware that a condition for coverage under GIEK’s guarantee is that the exporter, pursuant to OECD guidelines, and before guarantee issuance, provide a written declaration stating that neither the exporter nor anyone acting on the exporter’s behalf has acted or will act in violation of the prohibition contained in sections 387–389 of the Penal Code (see also section 15). The provisions pertain to corruption in relation to actors in the public and private sectors, and to trading in influence in the public and private sectors as well as complicity in such activity.

We declare that we have no suspicion of, or familiarity with, corruption among other parties involved in the project.

If there are financial ties between companies/individuals on our side of the transaction and companies/persons on the exporter’s side, GIEK shall be informed of these.

Control systems:

We understand and accept the importance of developing, implementing and being able to document satisfactory control systems for combatting corruption.

Corruption indictment/conviction

We declare that neither we nor others we know of who receive payment or other benefit for performing work or services in the transaction or who take part in some other way:

  • are under indictment for (or charged with) corruption, or

  • have been convicted of corruption in Norway or abroad in the five years prior to the date of this application
