The Circular 1/2016, on the criminal liability of legal persons according to the reform of the Criminal Code made by Organic Law 1/2015 determines the obligation of companies to integrate in their processes a protection system known as Compliance or normative compliance; it aims to establish the appropriate policies and procedures to ensure that a company, including its managers, employees and related agents, as suppliers, comply with the applicable regulatory framework. Compliance is a subject that is embedded in the culture of the company and seeks to internalize the respect for the Law as a source of inspiration for all processes and systems thereof.

Maritima del Estrecho Group is committed to adopt this culture and integrate all necessary measures to prevent, detect and correct those behaviours that are contrary to the law and the rights of people. Therefore, as a strategic plan, it has adopted and developed all the necessary actions to implement a code of conduct and a model for the prevention of criminal and anticorruption risks, as the first steps towards the establishment of a regulatory compliance management system.
