Anti-corruption policy


The CCIB has informed and trained in anti-corruption policies and procedures all the management team and the security staff. This staff represents more than 10% of the workforce.

The Centre has fixed a security team of about 10 people led by a Director of Security. This team ensures that all security regulations and protocols are accomplished to avoid any type of corruption either by action or omission. However, all the staff working exclusively in each security position specific for each event has to ensure that there are no reprehensible attitudes.
As per the presents, the CCIB staff can not accept any received from clients or suppliers. 

All presents received are delivered to security who will exercise their custody and inform the Management and Human Resources. Once they are registered and inventoried, the Management assigns a destination depending on the nature of these goods being also recorded the transfer by the Security Department.

The security team also carries out regularly the monitoring of people and materials to ensure the origin, tour and destination.
