Business Principles for Countering Bribery – Small and medium enterprise (SME) edition
To cater for the needs of smaller businesses, we produced an edition of the Business Principles for Countering Bribery tailored to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). More than 95 per cent of the world’s business is carried out by SMEs which may not have the same human and financial resources as larger companies, yet are just as vulnerable to the risks of bribery.
The SME Edition includes model anti-bribery principles for companies with fewer resources of time, money and people. It also provides practical guidance for developing anti-bribery programmes that suit the size and structure of smaller enterprises.
The SME Edition isn't only for smaller firms: it can also be used by larger companies to encourage SMEs in their supply chain to implement no-bribe policies and practices.
